''Nimrod'' from Enigma Variations for four cellos by Edward Elgar, arranged by James Barralet

published by Opus Cello

Opus Cello specializes in high-quality cello arrangements, often for 2 or more cellos, from the classical repertory and beyond. Its music has been performed by the likes of Yo-Yo Ma, Gautier Capucon, Kian Soltani, Sol Gabetta, Frans Helmerson, and more, as well as the Boston Cello Quartet and cello sections of major orchestras from around the world. First spearheaded by Blaise Dejardin, principal cellist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, it has grown to feature arrangements by Aurelien Sabouret, Sebastien Walnier, Renaud Guieu, and James Barralet. These publications help to greatly expand the repertoire for avid cellio ensembles and chamber groups.

Edward Elgar's (1857-1934) most beloved work is his Enigma Variations (1899) for orchestra, which illustrates lighthearted, affectionate portraits of his friends. The emotional centerpiece is Variation IX ''Nimrod'', referring to his closest and most supportive friend, August Jaeger. It has come to be loved in its own right as one of the most profound expressions of comeradery and dignity in classical music. It appears here in an arrangement for four cellos by James Barralet. Includes 4 performance parts and score.
