Elgar wrote his Enigma Variations between 1898 and 1899. It is without a doubt Elgar’s best-known large scale composition, and is dedicated to ‘my friends within’, as each variation is an affectionate portrayal of one of his circle of close acquaintances. The ninth variation, Nimrod, is dedicated to Augustus J Jaeger, Elgar’s publisher at Novello & Co., and also his editor and close friend.  The name of the variation refers to ‘the mighty hunter before the Lord’ and can be found in the Book of Genesis. The name Jaeger is German for hunter. Often used for solemn occasions, it is the most poignant and beautiful pieces in British music.
