Notes & Reviews:

Born in Texas in 1939, Andrew Rudin fondly remembers his childhood music teacher who opened the doors to the world of art for him. Already composing when he entered the music department of The University of Texas, Austin in 1957, his aesthetic sense then shifted toward the 12-tone technique, and later in the 1960s, electronic music. He continued his writing and teaching career through the 1970s, 80s and '90s. His Three String Sonatas, one each for violin, viola and cello, written after his retirement from teaching, were recorded for Centaur in 2009 and 2011.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
Once known for Moog Synthesizer music, Andrew Rudin, born in Texas with Swedish ancestry, went on to compose opera, ballet, chamber, and orchestral works. In March/ April 2012 I wrote enthusiastically about Rudin concertos; they were somber, yet full of interesting, surprising colors. They have definite form, especially the violin sonata, which compresses sonata form into a single movement. The slow sections - by far the most attractive - are full of poetic nuance.
