Elgar – Nimrod



It is always a joy playing Elgar’s music, as he was a master craftsman with an almost obsessive attention to detail, always clear in his intentions and leaving nothing to chance. And of all the variations in Elgar’s masterwork, Enigma, the iconic “Nimrod” seems to have taken on a life of its own with it’s slow moving, majestic melody. We are delighted to present to you not one, but two separate versions of this fabulous variation, both entirely different, one of which requires the 4th player to tune the C string to B flat. 3 mins. E/M
