Variations on an Original Theme (Enigma) Opus 36 - Wind Band

Wind Band - Variations on an Original Theme (Enigma) Opus 36, also known as the Enigma Variations, is an orchestra consisting of a musical theme and fourteen variations, composed by Edward Elgar in 1898-1899. This not only broke Elgar himself as a composer, but he placed even after several centuries the British music back on the international map. It is one of the most famous large-scale works of Elgar, not only because of the music but also by the enigma that is connected to that music. Elgar dedicated the piece to "my friends that it outlined", a reference to the fact that the different variations each form a musical portrait of someone from his vriendenkring.Andr Reichling edited ten variations for wind orchestra.
