This work deals with Nielsen's symphonies and other works, and also compares Nielsen and Sibelius as symphonists.
Robert Simpson's book is the classic study of Nielsen's music ...Simpson excels in pointing out the particular aspects of each piece of music which mark it as one of Nielsen's, and describing how tonality is used within the major pieces (particularly the symphonies) in a revolutionary way.
