Ruders writes: My second concerto for violin and orchestra is a 'reverse' cousin of Polydrama the cello concerto. The former starts out extremely slow and speeds up gradually and the latter progresses in exactly the opposite way, but whereas the cello concerto is composed as one, uninterrupted stretch, the violin concerto is formally completely different: there are 4 movements, each of them combined via a 'ritornello', a solo-cadenza which appears 4 times (the works conclude with a solo) in almost the shape, i.e. the length varies from time to time.
