Program Notes

The Dance of the Cockerels from Masquerade is one of Carl Nielsen's most popular pieces. It belongs to Act III of the opera [representing] the festivities at the big masked ball which brings all the participants together, high and low, young and old. The dance is in 3/4 time – not like a waltz, perhaps rather like a Polonase. We her the proud cockerel strutting around among the clucking hens. In the trio comes an eruptive, stereophonic episode where trumpets, bassoons, flutes and horn cry out to one another - like young roosters squabbling over the hens.
