Carl Nielsen (1865 - 1931)

3. Conflict

Donald Macleod looks at a selection of Nielsen's works written during a period of domestic and political crisis. The composer completed his fourth, 'Conflict' symphony in 1914, and saw it as reflecting the life force being 'transformed by its struggle to survive all obstacles thrown against it'.
