As in the first time you've seen the CNW numbers?
Aye.

Yeah, it's kind of the new standard thing apparently. It's one of those catalogues where it's chronological within a category, which I don't entirely love. Although it does end up highlighting that songs represent a huge amount of Nielsen's output.

A performance of the Symphony No. 3 arranged for two pianos by the composer. It's very nice to hear it as a curiosity, but it's not something necessarily essential we were missing.
Give us something else; give us something new; for Heaven's sake give us something bad, so long as we feel we are alive and active and not just passive admirers of tradition!
