Delius’s compositions were strongly influenced by those of Grieg, and it's said that On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring is a reflection on one of Grieg’s Norwegian Folk Tunes. It dates from a happy period of Delius's life and is one of his most impressionistic works with the clarinet repeating the cuckoo’s familiar call.
