Composition: [1890].

The exact date of composition is unknown but Solnedgang was presumably written in the late 1880s when Nielsen was engaged with setting music to texts by J.P. Jacobsen. The song's first performance pre-dates the publication with two years. In 1893, Nielsen composed a new melody to the same text (CNW 287 ).
