Poul Ruders STUDIUM: Concerto for 2 percussionsoloists and OrchestraAs indicated in the Latin title STUDIUM, this concerto is a study or etude for virtuoso percussion and orchestra and a composer's studium of the meticulous and patient building up a huge structure based on a very tight and sparse material. The title originally means and undertaking done with ardour and the wish to strive for the highest possible goal, a natural aim in any artistic endeavour. The orchestra and the soloists work in a body towards the off-centre placed climax, the technical level of the soloists increasing form ensemble status to stupefying virtuosic display, whereas the orchestra maintainsits tightly composed surround-sound. What then happens shall remain a surprise.Poul Ruders.
