Edward Elgar: 'W.N.' And 'Nimrod' From 'Enigma' Variations Op. 36
Two variations from Enigma. For Two-Stave Organ.
Available to Order
Two variations from Enigma. W.N. stands for Winifred Norbury, a friend Elgar regarded as particularly easygoing, and the music reflects this. A single violin note links into the next variation; the famous Nimrod which is written about his best friend Augustus Jaeger and reflects the strength of the friendship and the noble character of Jaeger, although it is now commonly used for solemn occasions such as funerals and remembrance services.
