Pre-Concert Discussion

Saturday, July 16 | 7:00pm

In the beginning of the 90s, I arranged some of J.S. Bach’s canons for ensemble…I became totally absorbed into this music and arranged them with the intention of the music being repeated many, many times, as a kind of minimal music…By listening to his canons in this way, a profound new moving world of circular time was opened to me…In my own work, an ongoing idea has persisted, of at some point writing a work consisting of a number of canonical movements that would explore this universe of time. -- Hans Abrahamsen

Abrahamsen’s work Schnee was born of this idea, and will be discussed by the Yellow Barn musicians performing it this evening.
