    A Nielsen respective like this is sorely needed for a very original master like him. Thank you.

    A similar review of Alkan is my suggestion. Performers, Horowitz among them, (I’ve met a few) are just afraid to play his music in public! There are easier pieces(his publisher put out a whole book of them). His chamber music is badly neglected.
    There is organ music (some derived from pedal piano),lots of humor and differing interpretations, the reasons for which you will understand better than I!

    Bill, I surely want to thank you for the attention given to Carl Nielsen’s works. I’ve been a long time fan of his music though through your own efforts my knowledge and experience is greatly enhanced. All the very best to you! -mark
