Marche des Contrebandiers (March of the Smugglers), from Carmen (violin cello duo)
Title: Marche des Contrebandiers (March of the Smugglers), from the opera Carmen
Composer: Georges Bizet, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin and Cello
Printout: 2 pages
Note: At the beginning of Act III of Carmen Don José (now on the lam) and Carmen join a band of smugglers in the mountains. The mysterious quality of this march perfectly captures the mood of the scene. Nevertheless, it is also useful in settings like parties and receptions where it can provide a change of pace from the usual.
March of the Smugglers is included in the Bargain Bundle Carmen, Selected Highlights for violin and cello, Set 3.
