Q: What song describes the Covid-19 pandemic for you?

A: “An Enigma” by Edward Elgar

It’s commonly called the “Enigma Variations,” which is said to contain a dark mystery that people have been trying to discover for years. Covid-19 has been an enigma for researchers, and the constantly changing rules and regulations remind me of a theme and variations such as those in the “Enigma Variations.” I mention this piece also because it is one of the most popular pieces ever written, and parts of it, especially the Nimrod variation, are stunningly gorgeous and can provide a retreat or solace from the pandemic.
