Music from the "richly lyrical" composer Robert Xavier Rodríguez.

Robert Xavier Rodríguez is one of the most significant and often-performed American composers of his generation. His music has been described as "Romantically dramatic" and "richly lyrical" by the press. He first gained international recognition in 1971 when he was awarded the Prix de Composition Musicale Prince Pierre de Monaco for his Trio I heard on this recording. A student of Nadia Boulanger, Rodríguez also studied composition with Jacob Druckman, Bruno Maderna and Elliott Carter. He holds the Endowed Chair of University Professor at The University of Texas at Dallas. His music has been performed all over the world by orchestras and at chamber music festivals. This recording offers a much-welcomed survey of his chamber music.

Review:
"Rodriguez's chamber works are a fine representation of a personal and public legacy the composer continues to shape." (Fort Worth Star-Telegram)

"Any listener who likes new American Romanticism will want to buy this disc. For me, the string quartet is worth the price of admission, no matter what your taste." (Fanfare)
