Aragonaise, from Carmen (string quartet)


Title: Aragonaise, from the opera Carmen

Composer: Georges Bizet, arr. David Gable

Instrumentation: Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola and Cello

Printout: 12 pages

Note: The Aragonaise, with its exotic rhythms and sinuous melodies, is a favorite selection from one of the opera world’s most popular romantic operas, Carmen. It has broad appeal to listeners and players alike. In the opera the Aragonaise serves as the entr’acte to Act IV, and it is heard immediately following the prelude in the first Carmen Suite.

Les Dragons d’Alcala
