Hans Abrahamsen is one of the greatest living Danish composers. His magnum opus, 'Schnee', will be performed in association with Copenhagen Contemporary on Saturday 12 August at midday. Acting as a satellite stage for HAVEN, the gallery will open its doors to festival-goers for the event entitled 'Snow in Summer', in which the large unadorned halls will be the venue for a performance of Abrahamsen’s masterpiece presented by Crash Ensemble and directed by Alan Pierson. 'Schnee' has generated excitement throughout the music world, not least with Bryce Dessner from The National, who will join with Abrahamsen after the concert to discuss the work and the contemporary classical world in general.
