Nimrod, is the ninth of the Enigma Variations composed by Edward Elgar in 1899. Here, the music is arranged for Wind Quartet, directly from the orchestral score. Elgar wrote fourteen variations on a theme, each one depicting close friends and family. Nimrod represents his publisher and friend Augustus Jaeger. The biblical character of Nimrod is described as a “mighty hunter”, and jaeger means “hunter” in German.

The single pdf file contains the full score plus individual parts for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet and Bassoon. There are additional alternative parts included for another Clarinet, Cor Anglais and Bass Clarinet. The linked youtube performance is the Clarinet version of this Quartet.

Musicians at an intermediate level and above will find this ideal for formal and informal performances. All parts require dramatic dynamic contrasts and lyrical legato playing. The overall performance time is around three minutes.
