BEETHOVEN, ABRAHAMSEN

“Form and freedom: perhaps a lot of my music has been an attempt to bring the two worlds together,” says Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen. His Ten Sinfonias, written in 2010 as an orchestral extension of his First String Quartet, refers back to historical models, both in its title and its scoring.
