Edward Elgar wrote his Variations on an Original Theme in 1899; each variation was meant toportray one of Elgar's close friends. The ninth movement, “Nimrod” is about and conversation thatthe composer had with music editor, Augustus J. Jaeger. They discussed the beauty of Beethoven’sslow movements and this can be heard in “Nimrod.” This brass quintet arrangement recreates thisBeethovenian beauty with warm voicing. It is important for players to listen to one or severalrecordings of this movement in order to get a feel for the style and changes in tempo. The printedtempi are approximate and may be deviated from.
