Edward Elgar: Finale (E.D.U.) from Enigma Variations

for Organ Duet

Elgar's Enigma Variations is one of his greatest and most popular works. The Finale is an optimistic and triumphant piece, depicting the composer's own confidence. This arrangement by Iain Farrington for organ duet (two players on one instrument) is complete and unabridged, playable but unsimplified. It requires an organ of three manuals with particular 'orchestral' qualities, to enable quick dynamic changes and suitable brass-like effects.
