[untitled] 1

Enter the brittle, fragile world of Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen in this hour-long tour de force. Inspired by the music of Bach and Steve Reich, Abrahamsen’s Schnee (“Snow”) reduces music to its most essential forms, weaving ghostly canons into landscapes filled with veils of shifting snow and patterns of crystalline frost.
