    Brass Band: Nimrod

    This isn't exactly euphonium related, but I was curious if anyone here knew where I may find the British brass band arrangement of Nimrod? I heard it on YouTube, and the brass band I am a part of really wants to play it, but I am having a hard time finding it.

    "Nimrod". One of my all-time favorite pieces. It's the ninth movement of Sir Edward Elgar's "Enigma Variations". It's by far the most popular movement of "Enigma Variations".

    If interested, you can listen to Leonard Slatkin and the Philharmonia Orchestra play the whole thing with the story behind it at Royal Albert Hall. Sir Elgar had a interesting sense of humor -- poking fun at some of his 'musical' and 'not-so-musical' friends. It's purported to contain the first conscious joke of the viola.

    Glad David Werden found a source for brass band arr.

  5. We are playing the Alfred Reed wind band arrangement this cycle in one of my community bands (I suggested this piece to the board). You can feel this piece breathe when the band is firing on all cylinders! Enjoy

    Alfred Reed was a genius. We're playing his "El Camino Royal" this next concert. It's a great piece!
