Product Description

About the Artist

Poul Ruders was born in Ringsted, Denmark on March 27, 1949. His early studies in piano and organ led eventually to studies in orchestration with the Danish composer Ib Nørholm. Ruders's first compositions date from the mid-60s. Ruders regards his own compositional development as a gradual one, with his true voice emerging with the chamber concerto, Four Compositions, of 1980. Writing about Ruders, the English critic Stephen Johnson states: "He can be gloriously, explosively extrovert one minute–withdrawn, haunted, intently inward-looking the next. Super-abundant high spirits alternate with pained, almost expressionistic lyricism; simplicity and directness with astringent irony."

Poul Ruders has created a large body of music ranging from opera and orchestral works through chamber, vocal and solo music. In recent years, performances of his work on both sides of the Atlantic and in such distant locals as China, Japan and Russia have taken place with increasing regularity. With the overwhelming success of his second opera, "The Handmaid's Tale" (1996-98), produced in Copenhagen (2000), Ruders became even more in demand, with commissions coming in rapid succession from the Berlin Philharmonic, The New York Philharmonic, The BBC Philharmonic, and from the Royal Danish Opera. Productions of "The Handmaid's Tale" will be given this season by The English National Opera and by the Minnesota Opera, and both the New York Philharmonic and Berlin Philharmonic will perform "Listening Earth" (2001), a work interrupted and then influenced by the events of September 11, 2001.

Poul Ruders is currently at work with his "Handmaid's Tale" collaborator, Paul Bentley, on an opera based on Franz Kafka's "The Trial". Commissioned by the Royal Danish Opera for the opening of the new opera house in Copenhagen (2005), the opera will explore Kafka's unfinished masterpiece, as well as including dramatized events from the writer's life. This summer, Ruders will be composer-in-residence at the Aspen Music Festival in Aspen Colorado.
