In the beginning of 1893, Carl Nielsen was requested to write music to Holger Drachmann's play Snefrid in connection with a planned performance at Det frie Theater. In less than a month the score was finished. The plans for a production at the theatre came to nothing, however, and the music was not performed until the following year. The music was later revised and arranged by Nielsen himself. Music from no. 4 was re-used in Hr. Oluf han rider – (1906) and Amor og Digteren (1929). See more about this work at The Royal Library
