Composition: 1930–31.

Finishing the 29 smaa Præludier for Orgel eller Harmonium (CNW 96), Nielsen began working on what was to be his last major composition: the organ work Commotio. It is not quite clear precisely when Nielsen began on the composition; some of the drafts are possibly from June 1930. The work was completed in February 1931.

Instrumentation: org.organo (organ)
