This is the ninth and most often performed work of Sir Edward Elgar's famous Enigma Variations of 1899. It pays tribute to his close friend, A.J. Jaeger, whose surname in German means hunter (according to the Bible, Noah's great grandson, Nimrod, was a gifted hunter). The overall success of this work depends heavily on a group's ability to observe dynamic nuance and play with good tone quality, blend and balance. The divisi 1st Violin part provides better players with welcome challenges. Duration ca. 2:30.
