(1876 - 1939)

Having studied the violin in Copenhagen, Ludolf Nielsen joined the Tivoli Orchestra as principal viola player, later to be appointed assistant conductor. He was virtually self-taught as a composer.

Orchestral and Choral Music

Eclectic in his musical language, Nielsen nevertheless drew on Danish national sources of inspiration. He wrote three symphonies, together with tone-poems that reflect late-Romantic and generally conservative tastes. His demanding The Tower of Babel, in the form of an oratorio, offers a reinterpretation of the Biblical narrative.
