The 1951 Rolling Review Show … # 106

Welcome to the 1951 Rolling Review Show which twice weekly features pieces of music I have enjoyed at some time in my life. I hope you enjoy them as well. Let me know if you do.

‘Nimrod’ – Edward Elgar

Edward Elgar composed his Variations on an Original Theme, Op. 36, popularly known as the Enigma Variations, between October 1898 and February 1899. It is an orchestral work comprising fourteen variations on an original theme.

Variation IX (Adagio) “Nimrod”, is the 9th variation.

  1. I love classical music that that is one of my absolute favorites. It takes charge of my emotions – builds them up – and ultimately leaves me breathless. Cannot say that I was impressed with the video, but the music was wonderful. Elgar was a very clever composer. 🙂

  2. Beautiful!!! Classical music and those pictures of the universe… what a powerful combination!

  3. I’ve always thought this music so grand, and the video of our splendid universe emphasizes the grandeur I think – really of both the music and the universe! I’m someone who needs music and loves all sorts, so thank you for this treat!
