From the Bridge Records website:

In recent years Bridge’s Poul Ruders Edition has focused on the Danish composer’s symphonic music, including the Grammy-nominated Piano Concerto No. 2 and the large Symphony No. 4 ‘An Organ Symphony’. Ruders, though mostly known for his operas and symphonic music, has also produced a steady output of solo and chamber music, frequently composing extended cycles of short pieces for friends and virtuosi. This recording contains several of these cycles heard in their premiere recording.
