Three Pieces from L'arlesienne Suites 1 and 2 composed by Georges Bizet (1838-1875)
Edited by Kurt Walther for Flute and Piano
Includes score and parts 

After a long series of setbacks and disappointments Georges Bizet (1838-1875) was finally able to achieve a triumphant success with the four-movement orchestral suite which he compiled from his incidental music to Alphonse Daudet's Provencal folk play “L'arlesienne” (the Maid of Arles). Encouraged by the favorable reception of this piece Ernest Guiraud, Bizet's friend and the trustee of his estate, issued a second “L'Arlesienne” suite, likewise in four movements, four years after the composer's early death.  Though at times he gave free reign to his own compositional imagination, Guiraud nevertheless held fast to Bizet's own intentions. 

A glance at the scores of the “L'Arlesienne” suites reveals that in several of their eight movements the flute is used almost continually, indeed primarily, as a solo instrument.  This made it natural to create, an edition for flute and piano in order to give fautists an opportunity to study the striking and idiomatic problems of these pieces outside an orchestral context. -Preface by Kurt Walther
