Title: Barcarolle (Belle nuit), from the opera The Tales of Hoffman

Composer: Jacques Offenbach, arr. David Gable

Instrumentation: Two Violins

Printout: 2 pages

Note: Though Offenbach is remembered more for his lively Can-Can, he was no slouch at writing beautiful melodies, as this lilting duet demonstrates. In this setting, the first violin plays the rolling harp chords while the second violin plays the melody.
