Notes & Reviews:

Rudolf Haken is currently Professor of Viola at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was born in 1965, and was a child prodigy who conducted his own orchestral music at the age of ten and had the good sense to select the viola as his primary instrument at an early age. He has become an outstanding concert artist, a bold and exciting performer whohas toured internationally to great success. His viola works, many written in the lush and dramatic style of the late 19th century, are distinguished by a sensuous lyricism, an exuberant sense of humor, a natural and thorough mastery of compositional technique, and above all an intimate understanding of the technical and expressive capabilities of the viola. All of these virtues are displayed magnificently in this new CD consisting of his music for viola and viola and piano.
