    Nimrod - Edward Elgar - Phillip Littlemore

    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 J?ger is German for hunter. Often used for solemn occasions, it is the most poignant and beautiful pieces of British music. Nimrod is recorded by the Leyland Band on the CD Crown Imperial conducted by Thomas Wyss. A soundclip of the music can be found here Item Code: TPBB-026 Duration: c.3'00"

    Pomp & Circumstance March No.1 - Edward Elgar - Phillip Littlemore

    Elgar's Pomp & Circumstance March No. 1 was completed in July 1901 although the 'big tune' actually dates from earlier in that same year. It was premiered in Liverpool by its dedicatees, the Liverpool Orchestral Society, on the 19th October. It was repeated in London a few days later by Henry Wood at the Promenade concerts and the result was sensational, the audience roared its applause, and refused to allow the concert to continue. In order to restore order, Wood conducted the march three times - the only time in the history of the Promenade concerts that an orchestral item was accorded a double encore in Wood's lifetime. Now a staple of the 'Last Night of the Proms', where it always manages a partial encore, and a fitting item for any such themed concerts. This new arrangement recreates the colour from the original orchestral version. This arrangement has been recorded by the Leyland Band, conducted by Thomas Wyss, and appears on the CD Crown Imperial . A soundclip is available here Item Code: TPBB-013 Duration: c.6''00"
