Carl Nielsen PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Carl Nielsen free pdf The Danish composer Carl Nielsen (1865-1931) was a principal figure in 20th-century Scandinavian music - his work progressive in style and technique. In this biography he emerges as an energetic individual - more dynamic than the popular image of him as a dreamy country boy who rose fom poverty to become Denmark's most influential composer. The text offers a subtle analysis of the composer's complex personality and shows that far from being provincial and naive, Nielsen was well-read widely travelled and deeply immersed in European culture.
