Item Number: CY.CC2749

Nimrod, the ninth variation from Elgar's masterpiece Op. 36, "Enigma Variations" (1898-99) is one of the most recognized works in the classical repertoire. There are so many adjectives to describe this piece of genius: stately, majestic, serious, solemn, moving, noble, languid, stoic, enduring and sublime. There are few works in the repertoire that bring forth such strong emotions as this work, which is often performed for funerals and for Memorial Day / Remembrance Day services.

Mr. Sauer's arrangement is dedicated to the memory of the late Milt Stevens.

This arrangement of 3-4 minutes in length is appropriate for an advanced performer on the top part and is of moderate difficultly for the rest.
