Album · 2005 · 16 Songs. The Uncovered Ruggles Donald Berman.

Mood for violin and piano represents Ruggles' earliest extant foray into dissonant counterpoint, and contains the only music we will ever hear from Ruggles' destroyed opera "The Sunken Bell. The songs Ich fühle deinem Odem, Windy Nights, and Prayer are more conventional outings, revealing his strong affinity for established nineteenth century traditions in melody and harmony.

This album is a recording of Ruggles' complete published works. A recent recording of newly unearthed ephemera was recently released but the present record is everything that Ruggles acknowledged and approved. It is a meager output for a man who lived to the age of 95 similar to the output of the equally important Edgard Varese whose complete works also fit on two vinyl records and the music is just as finely crafted. A notable exception is New World Records', & Uncovered Ruggles', posthumous reconstructions done by John Kirkpatrick and performed and produced by Kirkpatrick student Donald Berman actually makes a nice companion to the release at hand here for the Ruggles fanatic. I know they're out there. And there are digital downloads of some out of print recordings as well.
