Carl Nielsen was employed for a position as valve alto trombone by a Military Orchestra in Odense, Denmark in 1880. It´s known that around 1880 he wrote pieces for brass trio and quartet, but unfortunately, these pieces were lost somehow. A great shame, because it is very obvious that Nielsen truly loved the sound of brass - all his Symphonies bears testimony of this fact. If his brass compositions were still here today, surely they would have sounded somewhat similar to Mogens Andresen´s arrangments of selected 5 little preludes by Carl Nielsen -Nielsen compositions were originally made for Organ or Harmonium op.51. Mogens´s arrangements have a very special sound to them - Andresen has brought out the very unique sound of Nielsen - a true hit for any church or recital concert.
