Hans Abrahamsenís music, with its smooth transitions and subtly modified repeats, lends the lyrics both depth and lightness. He is keen to point out the range of avenues for interpretation available. ďItís possible to read the fairy tale in a variety of ways. It contains many mysteries which are open to numerous interpretations.Ē Accompanying Barbara Hannigan is a top-class ensemble of singers, including Peter Rose, Katarina Dalayman and Rachael Wilson. Cornelius Meister is the musical director, currently general music director at the Staatsoper Stuttgart. Director Andreas Kriegenburgís production of The Snow Queen is a touching story by adults, for an adult audience, offering a journey into the innermost regions of the human soul. Recorded during the premiere run in the presence of the composer and in close collaboration with him, this release captures an important work of new musical theatre.
