Programme Note


Reviews

  • Back in 1990, Poul Ruders made a huge impression at the Proms with his First Symphony. His brand-new Fourth...is a less obviously dazzling affair, but it confirmed the Dane as a force to be reckoned with.

    A hazily mysterious 'Prelude', a Gothic-horror 'Cort├Ęge' and a scurrying 'Etude' all end abruptly, as though most of the drama has been withheld. Then a mighty 'Chaconne' gathers the threads, culminating in a struggle of elemental ferocity...Ruders's trademark change-ringing sonorities ratchet up the excitement.
