Niels Rosing-Schow has never been attracted by specific aesthetic schools or groupings in musical life. He studied composition with Ib Nørholm at the Royal Danish Academy of Music where he himself now teaches. 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.
