Haydn’s Clock symphony is one of his very finest, showing all his considerable musical powers in four movements of wonderful invention, including the famous ‘ticking’ slow movement. Beethoven’s Triple Concerto is a delightful and rewarding oddity among his works, which has deservedly become more familiar in recent years. 
 
Nielsen’s intention in his final symphony may have been to express something ‘completely idyllic’, but the music playfully winds itself into a series of melodic riddles and paradoxes. Its final movement is a set of variations which allows a variety of emotions to be presented in turn.
