Composer Carl Nielsen
Description
Although Carl Nielsen 's Symphony No. 4 was completed in 1916 and although it prominently features a thundering duel between timpani, the composer did not write this work in response to World War I. Instead, it is a noisy, energetic, thrusting paean to the inextinguishability of life itself. And as music, like life in this instance, is inextinguishable, the four intricately interlinked movements are played without a break. In this work can be heard the influences of Brahms, Dvorak, Sibelius and others, all transformed by Nielsen 's creative spirit. The symphony ends in grand Romantic style with a triumphant finale wherein the jagged two-note and three-note themes of thebeginning are conquered by the songlike theme of the third movement. CN00013A is the parts to accompany this full score.
