Arranged for flute choir, this programmatic work has been a longtime favorite of classical music lovers.

Scored for Piccolo (doubles on C Flute), 6 C Flutes, 2 Alto Flutes, Bass Flute, String Bass, with optional Contrabass Flute and Drum parts.

Synopsis: The camel-drivers gradually approach the market; the cries of beggars for "Back-sheesh" are heard amid the bustle. The beautiful princess enters carried by her servants,(she is represented by a languorous theme, given at first to clarinet and cello, then repeated by full orchestra)-she stays to watch the jugglers and snake-charmer. The Caliph now passes through the market and interrupts the entertainment, the beggars are heard again, the princess prepares to depart and the caravan resumes its journey; the themes of the princess and the camel-drivers are heard faintly in the distance and the market-place becomes deserted.
