Poul Ruders

A Drummer's Tale, episode two

Gert Sørensen, percussion

Poul Ruders, composer

Poul Ruders has worked with Gert Sørensen for many years, and this has introduced Ruders' work with percussion to the diversity of sound potential inherent in the new technology of MIDI, samples and sound sources. Sørensen's and Ruders' expansion of the possibilities of the orchestral percussion can be heard in the orchestral works Solar Trilogy and in Ruders' opera The Handmaid's Tale.

Brilliant playing throughout (The Sunday Times)

Sørensen is clearly a phenomenally talented performer, and he really seems to speak through his instruments in the remarkable range of attacks he conjures" ***** (BBC Music Magazine)
