Jesús Rodolfo: Musical America’s New Artist of the Month

I wrote about the remarkable young violist Jésus Rodolfo for Musical America’s New Artist of the Month column:

At heart, Jesús Rodolfo is a storyteller who uses four strings and a bow to give voice to his restless imagination. The young Spanish violist constantly returns to the model of narrative—even when discussing music as formally abstract as Paul Hindemith’s sonatas for the instrument, which rank among his favorites. Two of his albums to date are devoted to the composer’s sonatas (those with piano accompaniment and the solo viola sonatas).
