Composition: Between 1880 and 1890.

Norsk folkedans seems to be from the 1880s. The pencil draft does not reveal any details as to when the work might have been composed. It may possibly be a movement which Nielsen discarded when preparing the collection of five piano pieces Op. 3 (CNW 81).

Instrumentation: pf.pianoforte (piano)
