Product Description

Poul Ruders: Alarm (Percussion Parts) : Music Sales America Series : Published by Music Sales America : # KP00033
Poul Ruders: Alarm

Work for Solo Percussion dating from 1983. Ruders writes: The extraordinary title is a typical example of Poul Ruder's (b. 1949) peculiar and bizarre sense of humour - Ruders; together with Hans Abrahamsen and Bo Holten; being one of the most important names within new Danish music after the Nørgård-Holmgreen-Nørholm generation. Although Ruders is influenced by Holmgreen's absurd simplicity; he takes up an original place in new Danish music to which he has conveyed humour and liveliness as well as theatre and virtuosity. Quotations; 'found objects'; play an important part in Ruders' music; for instance in his chamber work MEDIEVAL VARIATIONS (1974); but the old material is being varied with adequate audacity and liveliness so as to yield new qualities; not unlike Peter Maxwell Davies' 'music on music'. ALARM is 'a short shocker; a kind of film soundtrack without the pictures'; based on the horror in victor Hugo's THE BELL RINGER OF NOTRE DAME. To produce the right atmosphere of uneasiness and nervousness Ruders uses; among other things; the Balinese cymbal-machine 'ching-ching' and the snore of the 'didjeridoo' from Australia.
