Carl Nielsen 's music is fast becoming recognised here as of outstanding importance. He was born in 1865 (the same year as Sibelius) and died in 1931, leaving six remarkable symphonies, two operas, and a mass of chamber music and songs. He sometimes gave his symphonies titles suggesting aspects of human character, just as Beethoven named his Third Symphony Eroica. This work is early, and was composed at the turn of the century; the four movements represent the traditional four temperaments, being marked respectively, Allegro collericoy Allegro comodo e flemmatico, Andante malincolico, and Allegro sanguinco.
