Marc Lifschey had an incredible sound. I remember hearing him play Stravinsky’s Firebird at De Anza’s Flint Center. When he played the solo, I nearly melted. He filled the room with this velvety oboe sound and made it sound effortless.

He’s no longer with us, but I ran across this site where you can buy postcards that feature his art. I hadn’t a clue that he did this sort of thing. It was fun to see. Check it out for yourself!

There’s also this little blurb at the site:

Now available on CD:

Robert Shaw and the RCA Orchestra & Chorus, Mack Harrell, baritone and Marc Lifschey, oboe Bach Cantatas #56 & #82 (1958 stereo) and other collector’s items in limited editions, private issues.

Hmmm. Sounds like some things worth pursuing, yes?
