Nancy Dalberg, composer

Nancy Dalberg was one of Denmark's first female composers. Besides a symphony and two samller orchestral pieces she composed chamber music and songs. Her fine feeling for orchestration, which she developed as a pupil of Carl Nielsen, was something she was also able to help Carl Nielsen with when he himself was short of time.
