Programme Note
Poul Ruders Tattoo for One (1984)
For clarinet solo

Tattoo for One (1984) is a virtuoso tour de force and as such can be looked upon as a king of preparatory work to the later Clarinet Concerto (1985). Tattoo for One is characterized by Ruders’ inexhaustible instrumental fantasy, together with the associations arising from the notation of a tattoo: an outdoor military parade at dusk. Rythmic energy, and a finely edged treatment of motifs (including fragments of fanfare-like character) crowd in on the listener.

Tattoo for One was later in 1984 followed by a sister work, Tattoo for Three, for clarinet, cello and piano.
