Nimrod, Enigma Variations, Elgar - Violin and Piano

“Nimrod" - transcribed for Violin solo and Piano.

In recognition of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Sir Edward Elgar, I was able to celebrate one of my favorite composers with this violin and piano transcription of the ninth (and probably the most famous and best-loved) variation "Nimrod," opus 36, from his orchestral work, ENIGMA VARIATIONS - "My Friends Pictured Within". 

Elgar had written a special program note, and I quote "...the Variation bearing this name (Nimrod) is a record of a long summer evening talk, when my friend - A.J. Jaeger - grew nobly eloquent on the grandeur of Beethoven and especially of his slow movements. A reference to the Adagio of the Pathétique Sonata is therefore seen in the opening bars of the Nimrod Variation."
