"The bulk of Peter Ruzicka's catalogue of works is taken up by pieces for or with orchestra. For an artist whose intellectual purlieus have always centered on modernism, this is nothing to be taken for granted. The post-war avant-garde found its preferred vehicle in works for small ensemble and struggled to come to terms with large forms and forces. That Ruzicka turned to the orchestra from a sense of inner necessity has to do with the peculiar make-up of his creative imagination, which takes sound as its point of departure." Featured artists: Jeroen Berwaerts, trumpet. NDR Sinfonieorchester, Peter Ruzicka, conductor.
