Poul Ruders: Dream Catcher
Poul Ruders Edition, Vol. 16
Bridge's Poul Ruders Edition, Vol. 16, features the world premiere recording of a major new Ruders concerto, the seven movement "Sound and Simplicity" (2018), performed by Danish accordion virtuoso Bjarke Mogensen and the Odense Symfoniorkester, led by Sebastian Lang-Lessing. The album also includes Mogensen's transcription of Ruders's hypnotic "Dream Catcher" for solo accordion, and the re-issue of one of the Danish composer's masterpieces- his Symphony No. 3, subtitled "Dream Catcher". Ruders stands today among a handful of the world's leading composers, with operas staged in Munich, London, Copenhagen, New York, Santa Fe, and Boston, and symphonic scores commissioned by the Berlin Philharmonic, the New York Philharmonic, and the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
