composer
1900; Tempo giusto; dedicated to the artist Jens Ferdinand Willumsen; published in the newspaper Politiken on 1 January 1901

 
The Festival Prelude for the New Century (Fest-Præludium ved Aarhundredskiftet) is a breezily confident piece, whose sustained octaves and chords recall the opening movement (‘Intonation’) of the Suite Op 8. Nielsen marks the first bar ‘stolt, pompøst’ (‘proud, pompous’), and dedicated the work to his close friend, the artist Jens Ferdinand Willumsen. The piece was published on the front page of the Danish daily newspaper Politiken on 1 January 1901.

Le Fest-Præludium ved Aarhundredskiftet («Prélude de fête pour le nouveau siècle») est un morceau jovialement confiant, dont les octaves tenues et les accords rappellent le mouvement d’ouverture («Intonation») de la Suite, op. 8. Nielsen marque «stolt, pompøst» («fier, pompeux») la première mesure de cette œuvre dédiée à son ami intime, l’artiste Jens Ferdinand Willumsen. Elle parut à la une du quotidien danois Politiken, le 1er janvier 1901.

Das Fest-Præludium ved Aarhundredskiftet („Fest-Präludium zur Jahrhundertwende“) ist ein frisch-fröhlich beherztes Stück, dessen ausgehaltene Oktaven und Akkorde den einleitenden Satz („Intonation“) der Suite op. 8 in Erinnerung rufen. Nielsen überschrieb den ersten Takt mit „stolt, pompøst“ („stolz, pompös“) und widmete das Werk seinem engen Freund, dem bildenden Künstler Jens Ferdinand Willumsen. Das Stück wurde am 1. Januar 1901 auf der Titelseite der dänischen Tageszeitung Politiken abgedruckt.
