Poul Ruders, Vol. 15

$ 14.99

Volume 15 of Bridge's POUL RUDERS EDITION includes Piano Concerto No. 3 "Paganini Variations",  a virtuoso duo for harpsichord and piano, Cembal d'Amore, Second Book, and Kafkapriccio, an orchestral suite from Ruders's third opera, Kafka's Trial.  All three works are world premiere recordings, performed by Anne-Marie McDermott, piano, Quattro Mani, and the Odensesymfoniorkester conducted by Benjamin Shwartz and Andreas Delfs.  Three brilliant compositions from one of the world's greatest living composers.



"A trio of sparkling modern works gives a Danish master his latest due. This latest release counts as volume 15 and possesses all of the virtues of its predecessors, i.e. intelligent programming, fine performances and first-class sonic engineering.” - Limelight

Pianist Anne-Marie McDermott tackles this demanding, mesmerizing single movement with her habitual panache. Quattro Mani masters the blend and kinship of the diverse sound pallets throughout the eight movements. With the help of Ruders’ quicksilver, pugnacious score, this performance reaches an impressive benchmark, refined and exacting in its artistry.” - theWholeNote

An outstanding album...all of the music is superbly played by the forces involved and very well-recorded.” - The Art Music Lounge
