L'Arlesienne Suite No.2 and Carmen (Danse Bohemienne and Entr'acte) composed by Georges Bizet (1838-1875)
Edited by Werner Richter for Flute and Piano
Published by Zimmermann
Includes score and parts

      The opera “Carmen,” after a short story by Prosper Merimee, and the incidental music to the play “L'Arlesienne,” by Alphonse Daudet are without doubt the most important works of Bizet.  It is significant for him that his imagination was aroused most by literary subjects of high standing.  In spite of failure at their first performances, both works became worldwide successes continuing to our days.  The three examples selected here, all of them pieces complete in themselves within the larger framework, are a testimony to the fact that the brillant orchestrator Bizet had a special predilection for the future.  The opera, in particular, is full of the most beautiful and, for the musician, rewarding, but at the same time very demanding flute passages.  In all three pieces, the flute appears in combination with the harp, a pairing created previously by Mozart and other composers.  They also have in common that out of the early soloistic duo of flute and harp an orchestra tutti gradually develops in which the flute continues the top part, but shares in with other voices.  However, while in the two E flat major pieces (which have some other things in common) the end occurs in a piano, with the two solo instruments again standing out, there is a single furious crescendo-accelerando in the Danse Bohemienne. – Preface by Werner Richter
