Poul Ruders: Occam’s Razor features music composed for American guitarist David Starobin by the Danish composer Poul Ruders. During the past 30 years Ruders has written steadily for Starobin, including solo music, chamber music and two guitar concertos. Joining Starobin are a stellar array of musicians including the New York Philharmonic’s principal oboist, Liang Wang, New York Philharmonic percussionist, Daniel Druckman, Armenian violinist Movses Pogossian, New Zealand violinist Amalia Hall, and Chinese guitarists Xiaobo Pu, YunXiang Fan and Hao Yang. David Starobin is the dedicatee of more than three hundred compositions featuring the guitar, including works by Milton Babbitt, Elliott Carter, George Crumb, Poul Ruders and Gunther Schuller. A frequently honored figure, Starobin was called “arguably the most influential American classical guitarist of the 20th Century” (Soundboard), and was inducted into the Guitar Foundation of America's "Hall of Fame" in 2011. David Starobin concertizes and records on both period and modern guitars, often championing the music of 19th century guitar masters Giuliani, Sor, Matiegka and Regondi. Starobin has received Grammy nominations as guitarist, mandolinist, and "Classical Producer of the Year." He is Founder and Director of Artists & Repertoire at Bridge Records, Inc., a company which has been honored with 32 Grammy and Latin Grammy nominations.
