Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
Fanfare (5-6/98, pp.188-89) - "Excellent. Soren Kinch Hansen is unknown to me, but he might be someone to watch; he leads the Aarhus Sinfonietta in interpretations that delineate string, woodwind, and brass gestures for maximum coloristic effects..."
BBC Music (3/98, p.73) - Performance: 5 (out of 5), Sound: 4 (out of 5) - "...BIS's programme of works from the Eighties underlines both the sometimes startling breadth of [Ruders'] musical canvas - strong, simple conceptions boldly scaled - and confirms his freewheeling instrumental imagination..."
