As part of RNCM's Ny Music Dansk festival featuring the music of Per Norgaard and Hans Abrahamsen, ACM Ensemble provides the opportunity to witness a rare complete performance of Abrahamsen's monumental Schnee. This is a work fast becoming a icon of 21st Century music, described by Paul Griffiths as "poetry of winter: of whiteness, crystal form, quietude, and expectation". In preparation for the concert, ACM has worked closely with the composer on his incredibly detailed and demanding music.
