Ether Game asks: can you name this tune? If you don’t, get cracking!

This famous story of gifts gone wild was not easy to compose – the composer suffered from severe writer’s block. To make matters worse, he was had to take a transatlantic trip at the same time! The reason for his visit was to celebrate the opening of a famous American concert hall. When he finally go back home he got “cracking” on this work and finished the next year.
