Notes and Editorial Reviews
This disc presents Poul Ruders's latest orchestral composition, a 31 minute "Organ Symphony" in four movements, featuring a superbly wrought organ part played by Danish virtuoso, Flemming Dreisig.

The brilliantly orchestrated Symphony No. 4 is perhaps Ruders's most extroverted work to date. Ruders composed his Trio Transcendentale as the set piece for the Carl Nielsen International Organ Competition, and it is recorded here by the winner of the 2011 'Ruders Prize', the British organist, Nicholas Wearne.

Songs and Rhapsodies is a 25 minute suite, written for the Danish accordionist Frode Andersen and the woodwind quintet of Athelas, Denmark's foremost new music ensemble.

Poul Ruders, Vol. 7 is the follow-up to last year's Vol. 6 (BRIDGE 9336), which was Gramophone finalist for 'Best Contemporary Music Recording of the Year."
