In 1975, John La Montaine and Paul J. Sifler founded Fredonia Press, for the purpose of publishing exclusively the works of the two composers. The company is named after the street on which La Montaine and Sifler lived.[1]

John La Montaine and Paul J. Sifler[edit]

John Maynard La Montaine (March 17, 1920 – April 29, 2013)[2] was an American pianist and composer, born in Oak Park, Illinois, who won the 1959 Pulitzer Prize for Music[3] for his Piano Concerto No. 1 "In Time of War" (1958). Paul John Sifler (December 31, 1911 – May 20, 2001), was born in Ljubljana, Slovenia and emigrated to the United States at the age of 11. His long and varied career included stints as an organist, composer, and conductor. [4]
