An adaptation of Nimrod, Variation IX in Edward Elgars orchestral Enigma Variations. In this symphonic work each variation bears a title or the initials of a particular friend or family member. Nimrod is dedicated to a close friend, music critic Augustus Jaeger (Jaeger being the German word for hunter), and Nimrod being a Biblical person known as a mighty hunter. According to Elgars own notes, it reflects a discussion the two men had about the incomparable slow movements of Beethoven, and the opening bars were intended to suggest the beginning of the slow movement of the Pathetique Sonata. Nimrod has been considered by many to be the emotional heart of the entire work. As the most famous of the variations, it is often performed on solemn occasions. The tempo and expressive markings are taken directly from the original orchestral score. The organist may apply a wide array of dynamics and color to the work.
