Journey into a frozen wilderness

From the delicacy of a single snowflake, whispering as it falls from the sky, to vast, impenetrable snowdrifts – Hans Abrahamsen’s monumental artwork Schnee is an all-encompassing experience. In this hour-long tour de force Abrahamsen uses a series of interlocking canons to create a magnificent and ethereal piece of musical architecture. The loneliness and quietude of this frozen landscape finds resonance in Simon Holt’s piccolo concerto – Fool is Hurt – a work inspired by the isolation of the central character in the Federico Fellini film La Strada.
