Notes & Reviews:

Russian orchestra Musica Viva has recorded one very famous, and one forgotten piece by Antonín Dvorak. Serenade for Strings in E major, written by Dvorak in 1875, is well-known. Unlike its brother, the B minor Concerto Op. 104, the Cello Concerto in A major has been overlooked. Cello virtuoso Alexander Rudin, and Musica Viva let us taste from this magnificent forgotten treasure.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Since almost every recording has been with the big concerto - and you probably have a few recordings of that already - you may want to try the Rudin. It seems very well played and refined. It's a routine performance of a work that has been widely recorded - even by Stokowski. Still, I will keep this for the fine reading of the early cello concerto.
