Poul Ruders: Piano Works / Rolf Hind Label: DACAPO Catalog: 8224148 Format: CD Rolf Hind: piano Poul Ruders: Star-Prelude and Love Fugue (1990) / Piano Sonata No. 1 "Dante Sonata" (1970) / Three Letters from the Unknown Soldier (1967) Ruders is by nature what the Germans call an Ausdrucksmusiker. Everything he has written is marked by a decided will to expression. Stylistically, he operates with a wide-ranging expressive register. Of his earliest development one could almost say that it followed several tracks - something that can also to a certain extent be read out of his piano output. It consists of six works for solo piano and two piano concertos, and spans a period from 1967 to 1994.
