Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The 1899 debut of the Enigma Variations won Elgar renown throughout the British Isles and abroad, and the work remains one of his most widely performed works. Reprinted here from an authoritative English edition, the 14 variations teem with rich melodies and vibrant rhythms. Each portrays the personality of one of the Elgar's friends.
