ekran-resmi-2017-01-11-16-14-24ALEXANDER RUDIN

A student of Daniil Shafran, Alexander Rudin is proficient as cellist, pianist, teacher and conductor, exhibiting a universal musicianship characteristic of other great artists of the Russian school such as Rostropovich, Koussevitzky, Shostakovich and Rachmaninov. He received a traditional academic training in the Soviet system, but has become involved in researching early music and performing on the viola da gamba and other period instruments. He is also renowned for bringing forgotten or unknown works to his audiences, interspersing them with staple repertoire in his concert programming. Rudin’s chamber music activities include not only performing, but also teaching at the Moscow Conservatory and Helsinki Sibelius Academy, and giving masterclasses internationally.

His discography is relatively conservative, revealing a penchant for large-scale Romantic and post-Romantic works. His solo Bach recordings of 2002 (including his own transcription of the Chaconne from Violin Partita BWV 1004) are rustic in style, favouring a senza-vibrato approach and some roughness of tone which might point to an element of historical awareness. The Suite No. 1 is delivered with logical, shapely phrasing and fleetness in the Courante and final Gigue. The Dvořák Concerto (1994) evidences modern traits of reliability and stability, although the Moscow Symphony Orchestra’s rather patchy performance holds some excitement and gravitas. Rudin’s finale is perhaps a little weak, but the first movement is passionately characterised and the second suitably wistful and nostalgic. Glazunov’s Two Pieces Op. 20 (1996) are well-characterised, the famous Sérénade Espagnole aptly juxtaposing a light, humorous opening theme with a portentous minor episode.

Rudin’s approach, whilst generally consistent in these works, does admit variety of colour and characterisation. Thus, Kabalevsky’s Cello Concerto No. 1 (1996)—written when Kabalevsky was engaged in composing material for young players—is light and delicate at times, and the effervescent finale is full of excitement. Conversely, Prokofiev’s dark and (in the finale) bleakly ironic Concertino in G minor (1995) has a denser tone with plenty of accentuation and energy. Finally, Rudin’s command of long, unfolding Romantic melodies is amply demonstrated by Strauss’s Romance No. 1 (1997).
