English composer Edward Elgar dedicated this masterpiece to his friends "pictured within" and in the score each variation is prefaced with either a nickname or initials, a clue to the identity of the friend depicted. Arrangement includes Theme (Andante) and Variation I ("L'istesso tempo) "C.A.E.", Variation II (Allegro) "H.D.S.-P.", Variation III (Allegretto) "R.B.T.", Variation IV (Allegro molto) "W.M.B.", Variation V (Allegretto) "W.N.", Variation VI (Adagio) "Nimrod", Variation VII (Intermezzo: Allegretto) "Dorabella", Variation VIII (Allegro Molto) "G.R.S.".  A great adaptation, with explanatory forward, for the flute orchestra by Shaul Ben-Meir.
