Title: Marche des Contrebandiers (March of the Smugglers), from the opera Carmen
Composer: Georges Bizet, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin, Violin and Cello
Printout: 3 pages
Note: At the beginning of Act III of Carmen, Don José and Carmen join a band of smugglers in the mountains. The mysterious quality of this march perfectly captures the mood of the scene. It is nevertheless useful in settings like parties and receptions to give the ear a break from the usual repertoire.
