Niels Rosing-Schow has never been attracted by specific aesthetic schools or groupings in musical life. Although he admits the influences of composers including Stravinsky, Xenakis and Murail, each new work presents new challenges and new experiences. Rosing-Schow attaches great importance to sensuality and ambiguity. His aim is to connect with the spirit of the times in order to create something that is personal, but which reaches beyond the subjective to express something more profound and universal. His music is characterized by clear form and a concisely and economically handled material. The style is smooth and considered with carefully tuned harmonics and delicate, precisely detailed instrumentation. As early as 1982 Niels Rosing-Schow received the three year grant from the Danish Arts Foundation, and since then he has received numerous grants and prizes such as the Carl Nielsen Award in 1993, the Schierbeck Grant in 1996 and the Wilhelm Hansen Composer Prize in 2000.
