Programme Note
Poul Ruders Tundra (1990),
Poul Ruders: Tundra

I have chosen the Finnish word ‘Tundra’ as a title, a word which is known internationally, and at the same time a word which represents the quintessence of the far North and this work: a certain isolated part of Sibelius’ world maintained, frozen, and hereafter - by me - changed to a short orchestral piece - with love from Denmark. Tundra was commissioned by the Helsinki Philharmonics to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the birth of Jean Sibelius. The work was world premiered in Helsingfors 7th December 1990 and repeated the next day on Sibelius’ date of birth in his native town.
