Rating Review
Customer Rating This is a MONUMENTAL score. Not as hardcore a symphonist as his compatriot Nørgård but this, Ruder’s first symphony, is one of the most interesting, beautiful, amazing, gorgeous and frightening symphonies you’ll ever hope to hear - second only in emotional scale to Ives' grand 4th Symphony. The score is expensive but this properly printed manuscript is a thing of beauty!! And it should be in everybody’s collection – please, Chester/Hansen, put the score on special offer so that we can hope to afford it!! The subtitle means (my semi-translation) “Rejoicing to Heaven, cast down to death” and so it should not come as a surprise that this symphony is full of extremes: the second movement is sublime, the last a dirge, the first and third manic. Don’t expect to leave this music unchanged. Ruders is a real chamelion and this incarnation is one of his most intensely fascinating.
