Ablinger: Grisailles (1-100)


Hildegard Kleeb (piano)

The throbbing standstill as changing tinge of light, as a slow change (of light and therefore of space and time), fifty minutes long. Grisailles 1-100 for three pianos consists of various levels of overlapping sound-layers. Repeated octaves and small, barely audible sounds made by fingers darting across the keys seem to be two of these levels. Peter Ablinger composed twenty-four layers to start with—each one following its own time and structure—, before these were being combined in a preliminary score. — Christian Scheib

Ablinger: Voices and Piano

Ablinger: Voices and Piano


Voices and Piano, written for Nicolas Hodges, is an extensive cycle of pieces, each for a single recorded voice, mostly of a well-known celebrity, and piano. The cycle is still in progress and should eventually include about 80 pieces/voices (around 4 hours of music). The work is always meant to occur as a selection from the whole. At present I like to write works where the whole should not be presented at once. The whole should remain the whole, and what we hear is just a part of it. (Peter Ablinger)

'I often find myself asking where the music in this situation resides. It is clearly not in the piano part alone, nor is it in the recorded voice. It is in the relationship between the two parts, their counterpoint: sometimes they are subtly different parallel lines, sometimes two interweaving yet independent parts, sometimes the piano is a machine desperately attempting to contain or imitate humanity' (Nicolas Hodges)

Abrahamsen: Schnee

Abrahamsen: Schnee

Ten canons for nine instruments


“Hans Abrahamsen’s Schnee is a wonder. How to say how? It is a sequence of aural images of snow, in some cases onomatopoeic (the swish of brushing off a wooden deck, the soft ease-crunch of steps through a fresh snowfall) but more often poetic, suggesting crystalline whiteness, cold light, gentle falling. It is a set of ten canons, ten systematic processes in which the same ideas are floating in slow spirals seen in mirrors. It is a study in melancholy (and joy). It is a succession of five pairs of movements, where the second in each pair repeats the first, as if the first had been music on glass and could now be overlaid on something else. It is simultaneously time standing still, splitting, revolving and accelerating away—standing still because we are held under the spell of a basic melody throughout, splitting because layers will move at different speeds, revolving because the same ideas are constantly being refracted and reformed as layers knock against one another, and accelerating away because the movements get shorter and shorter, from nine minutes down to one for a total length of just under an hour. A tune picks itself out right at the top of the piano as one of the string instruments keeps repeating a superhigh harmonic, almost pitchless, creating gasps of intensity, fire in ice. This is the pristine sound world, new and unforgettable, established at once. The tune is repeated and then overlapped, in the first intimation of the kind of interference pattern of past and present that is one of the most remarkable features of the work. On a larger scale, the entire first movement (for piano quartet, sounding as no piano quartet ever did) is embedded in the second (for the full ensemble, adding a second piano, percussion and three woodwinds), and on the largest, perhaps all the movements are doubles of one another. Certainly every listening, of which there will be many, brings new relationships into focus—though it is easy, too, to be snow-blinded by the beauty, which persists immovable, through changes of character, speed and tuning, adjustment to the last being accommodated in three short interludes.” Paul Griffiths

“The scene is set by a pertinent note from the composer, keen to avoid the impression that the rarefied nature of his music makes it wantonly cerebral - something which those who give this disc the benefit of any doubt will surely agree.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2010

Ensemble MidtVest

Hans Abrahamsen (b. 1952), who received the Royal Philharmonic Society Award in 2015 and the Grawemeyer Award in 2016, is a unique voice in Nordic music. On this album, two of his earliest works bear witness to the composer’s strong ideal of a new, simple and objective kind of music. In Landscapes , Abrahamsen rediscovers expressiveness by peeling away superfluous complexity, while the lyricism of Walden rests on minutely controlled minimalism. The recording by Ensemble MidtVest also presents two transcriptions of music by Schumann and Ravel, composers who have inspired Abrahamsen with their naivistic and poetic musical universes.

“Hans Abrahamsen’s music is having a moment in the spotlight, and this is another excellent contribution from the Ensemble MidtVest” BBC Music Magazine, December 2016 ****
