One of my favorite classical music pieces is a movement from English composer’s, Sir Edward Elgar, ‘Enigma Variations’. This orchestral piece has 14 variations on an original theme. My favorite movement from that piece is the variation #9 known as the ‘Nimrod Variation‘.
Edward Elgar [1857 – 1934]
This short Adagio movement is one of the most beautiful melodies you will ever hear. I hope it will make your day seem a little more pleasant.
This video has Daniel Barenboim leading the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Turn up the volume and enjoy the beauty of the ‘Nimrod’.
