  • Scope and Contents

    The Henri Lazarof papers consist of recordings, manuscripts, professional and personal papers, programs, scores, photographs, and other materials related to Henri Lazarof’s life and career as a contemporary composer. The collection documents Lazarof’s work and creative process as he composed more than 150 works of music. Lazarof was a professor of music at UCLA and a lifelong supporter of the arts, and this collection contains records of these aspects of his life. Additionally, the collection features programs, correspondence, and other records related to performances and recordings of his works. While materials span his entire life (1932-2013), the bulk of the records are concentrated in the 1960s-2000s, when he was most professionally active. For details, see the series-level descriptions.
