About this Item

LETTERS TO NIMROD. Edward Elgar to August Jaeger 1897 - 1908 Edited and Annotated by Percy M Young. Dennis Dobson, London. 1965 First edition 298pp Illustrated Hardback August Jaeger (1860-1909) was an Anglo-German music publisher, who developed a close friendship with the English composer Edward Elgar. Born in Düsseldorf, Germany, Jaeger met Elgar through his employment at the London music publisher Novello. His advice and friendship became invaluable to Elgar, causing the composer to rework many famous musical passages, including the finale to his Variations on an Original Theme (Enigma Variations) and the climax of The Dream of Gerontius. Jaeger has been immortalized in the famous ninth variation "Nimrod" from the first above-mentioned work, recalling a conversation on the slow movements of Beethoven (Nimrod was a Biblical hunter, a pun on the German word for hunter, Jäger). This copy is in FINE condition in a FINE publisher price clipped dustwrapper. Ref O7 Size: 298pp. Bookseller Inventory # 004606
