Fiddler, composer, and storyteller Max Wolpert conjures up monsters and myths where the traditional, classical, and theatrical meet. Whether built upon the verve and bounce of an Irish jig, the endearing asymmetry of a Welsh pipe tune, or the drive of a Virginian breakdown, Max’s pieces are crafted with taut detail and a flair for the dramatic honed over years as a pit musician, conductor, and orchestrator for theatrical productions.
Max’s work has been performed by the Colorado Symphony, Pro Musica Chamber Orchestra, Bismarck-Mandan Symphony Orchestra, Musique sur la Mer Chamber Orchestra, and Breckenridge Music Festival Orchestra. His music appears on Naxos Records and Yellow Sound Label.
