Andrew Rudin

Sonata For Violoncello and Piano

2010

SK책NE HILL MUSIC


PROGRAM NOTE: Sonata for Violoncello and Piano was composed in October and November of 2010 at The Viriginia Center for the Creative Arts. The four-movement structure is designed so that each successive movement lengthens by almost exactly one minute from the movement which preceded it. In this way, the first two movements-- Proclamation and Reparteé, which are joined attaca -- form a balance with the final movement, Consolation. In one sense, the opening Proclamation can be heard as the introduction to the scherzando character of the second movement, and also to prefigure in character the third movement, Discourse, which begins with a free recitative, preceding the main “argumemt”, where both players are truly equal partners. A quiet, “flash-forward” moment at the very conclusion of the scherzo, similarly prefigures the final Consolation, which is the lyrical destination of the work. The first performance was given by Sam Magill, cello, and Beth Levin, piano, at the Bruno Walter Auditorium in Lincoln Center, New York City, on May 7, 2011. Duration: 14 minutes

ANDREW RUDIN is a Texas-born composer of Swedish ancestry. His “Il Giuoco” was the first large-scale work for Moog Synthesizer. His synthesized music is heard in the sound-track of the film “Fellini: Satyricon” and his “Tragoedia” on Nonesuch Records was described by critic Alfred Frankenstein as “The best large-scale electronic work I have ever heard. In Andrew Rudin's hands the electronic idiom finally comes of age.” He has composed ballets for the Pennsylvania Ballet, Murray Louis, Dance Theatre Workshop, Louis Falco, Jeff Duncan, London Contemporary Dance Theatre, four collaborations with Alwin Nikolais, and music for Tennessee Williams’ “Outcry”. His opera “The Innocent” was produced in Philadelphia by Tito Capobianco in 1972 His music has been performed by such artists as pianists Lydia Artymiw, Marcantonio Barone, Beth Levin and Steven Beck, duopianists Stephanie & Saar, violinists Diane Monroe & Miranda Cuckson, violist Brett Deubner, percussionist Anthony Orlando, flutists Mimi Stillman and Patricia Spencer, cellists Sam Magil, Lloyd Smith, Eugene Moye, and Michal Schmidt, and clarinetist Ronald Reuben. Recent concertos for Violin, Viola, and Piano, available on Centaur and Innova labels, have brought him renewed recognition.. He is the recipient of fellowships from Yaddo, MacDowell Colony, Ucross Foundation, and Virginia Center. His teachers have included George Rochberg, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Ralph Shapey, Kent Kennan, and Paul Pisk. He has served on the faculties of the Juilliard School and The University of the Arts, where he taught until 2001. www.composerRudin.co m
