Programme Note

Poul Ruders VOX IN RAMA

The Trio VOX IN RAMA for clarinet, amplified violin and piano was commissioned by The Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1983.
The piece is a violent scherzo in form of a tone-poem on the screaming despair of these few lines:
In Rama was there a voice heard,
Lamentation and weeping
And great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children,
And would not be comforted,
Because they are not.
Matthew 2:18

Poul Ruders
