The Toreador’s Song, from Carmen (string trio – two violins and cello)
Title: The Toreador’s Song, from the opera Carmen
Composer: Georges Bizet, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Two Violins and Cello
Printout: 6 pages
Note: The Toreador’s Song is perhaps the best-known aria from Bizet’s masterpiece, Carmen, but more than being a catchy tune, the music imbues Escamillo (the toreador) with a flair for the dramatic and a self-aggrandizing ego. This is a must-have piece for gig musicians and opera lovers.
