Elgar School of Music
We're proud to have worked with the Elgar School of Music in Worcester to launch our Nimrod route and are delighted to tell you about their events to allow you to learn more about the music of Elgar and beyond.

The English Composer Edward Elgar (1857-1934) was born near Worcester and will always be associated with the area, in particular his beloved Malvern Hills.
One of his best loved and most enduring works is Variations on an Original Theme, Op. 36, popularly known as the Enigma Variations, each one dedicated to a personal friend.
Augustus Jaegar, a music editor and close friend, gave Elgar support, advice and criticism, something Elgar greatly appreciated.
The variation dedicated to Jaegar was called Nmirod. Nimrod was an Old Testament Vigure, the great-grandson of Noah, described as 'a mighty hunter before the Lord.' Jäger is German for Hunter.
