Paul Taffanel (1844-1908)
Edited by Philippe Bernold
Duration: 8 min 30 sec

The Fantaisie on the opera Les Indes galantes by J.P Rameau (1683-1764) is one of several fantasies on famous operas by Taffanel. It is interesting to note that, whereas the main themes are indeed taken from Les Indes galantes, the beginning of the piece borrows from another Rameau opera: Hippolyte et Aricie.
