“Andy is a wonderful string writer and conceptualizer,
one of the groundbreakers in a largely untapped genre.”
- Bruce Thomas, Composer & Berklee College of Music Professor
“I have had the pleasure of working with Andy Reiner as a performer, teacher and composer. Andy’s music is very appealing to performers and audiences alike. My students loved performing "Cluck Old Hen,” "Blue Sky Basin,” and “Solitary Cloud.” His music displays a high level of compositional craft, and the parts, while challenging, are very satisfying for string players. There is a sense of humor and joy in Andy’s music that is truly unique. I recommend him highly.”
- Enrique Lasansky DMA
Director of Orchestras
Denver School of the Arts
Andy’s music for string orchestra is something new in the genre. His love of rhythm is fully manifest in the creative use of string instruments, creating a pulsing, rocking ensemble supporting Andy’s considerable harmonic and melodic gifts drawn from classical, jazz and folk music.
