The dryly valid caption of Hans Abrahamsen’s Schnee, “10 canons for 9 tools”, barely mean the wonderful sonorities as well as flashing representations discovered in this 55-minute job, which was made up in between 2006 as well as 2008. In the 1990s Abrahamsen created virtually absolutely nothing, as well as he went back to structure tentatively, initially with a collection of orchestrations of both his very own as well as various other authors’ songs, and after that with a piano concerto in which he initially discovered the audio globe he had actually reimagined for himself.

In Schnee that crystalline brand-new globe reached its conclusive type, raised from triads of strings as well as woodwind, along with 2 pianos as well as percussion. Its beginning factor was a collection of setups of Bach canons that Abrahamsen had actually made in the very early 1990s, however there’s absolutely nothing from another location Bachian concerning his feedback. The 10 canons of Schnee can be found in corresponding sets, each of which the author likens to 2 variations of a paint in various colours.

It showed to be the portal to a lot that has actually adhered to in Abrahamsen’s songs– to the just as breakable soundscapes of the amazing song-cycle Let Me Tell You, as well as much more clearly to his Hans Christian Andersen opera The Snow Queen, initial executed in 2019; the initial of the canons in Schnee underpins the opening scene of the opera, while the torrential 4th supplied the product for the Snow Queen’s sleigh trip via the snow.
