Misc. Notes Kalmus made these parts by comparing the Tuxen parts below to the 1926 score (currently missing here) and reverting Tuxen's changes. I have doubts as to how closely these parts actually reflect the 1926 score. Thank you Kalmus, very cool!

As explained by David Fanning in a recent book on Nielsen's 5th, page 84, Tuxen was given care over Nielsen's music should/when he died; Telmányi criticized Tuxen's handling of the first (1950) full score of the work (compare the parts, and the new corrected edition. A brief summary is given in the Wikipedia article: "at its climax comes the instruction to the snare drummer by the composer to improvise "as if at all costs he wants to stop the progress of the orchestra". (This instruction is not included in the 1950 edition of the score, being replaced by a written rhythmic line and instruction "cad. ad lib." after a few bars.)") Tuxen also adds an optional alto flute, bass clarinet, and contrabassoon not present in Nielsen's original score.
