Notes and Editorial Reviews

Poul Ruders' (b. 1949) music is characterized by a pronounced will to expression. It is stylistically varied and typically has a wide expressive register. Ruders' artistic development has taken him in various stylistic directions, as can be more than glimpsed in the works represented on this CD: three works for solo guitar, one for voice with guitar accompaniment and two for ensemble. The works on the CD range in time from 1973 to 1996. Poul Ruders' (b. 1949) music is characterized by a pronounced will to expression.
