Elgar's 'Enigma' Variations is the inspiration for a new work commissioned from 14 living composers as a special birthday tribute to conductor Martyn Brabbins, who turns 60 today.

Elgar's original set also features, as do Vaughan Williams's exquisite Serenade to Music and Brahms's 'Little Requiem', the Song of Destiny.
