Elgar - Nimrod from Enigma Variations - transcribed for Violin, Flute and Piano
"Nimrod" - transcribed for Violin, Flute and Piano. In recognition of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Sir Edward Elgar in 2007, I celebrated one of my favorite composers with a series of transcriptions - particularly this chamber transcription for violin, flute and piano 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 "...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."Your download includes separate violin and flute parts, and score.
