The Enigma Variations

Posted by KevinBacon, 28 June 2011 · 543 views

When Edward Elgar wrote the Enigma Variations...each song was dedicated to a friend.
'Nimrod' is a favorite of mine, it moves me. It makes me think of a time when war was still romantic, of men writing letters to loved ones back home, in rainy trenches in foreign lands far from home.
Elgar dedicated 'Nimrod' to a friend that convinced him to continue composing music, at a time when he was about to quit in a fit of depression.

I hope you you can appreciate it a bit....

I got to admit that this song is awfully good, strong sentimental value.
I listened to it and then read what u wrote. It truly moves you :(
Thank you, Zuthy!
I truly beleive that when you hear the story behind a song, it can make it much more powerful.
I'm so mad at myself! I found a video that goes with the song so much better!
