The Toreador’s Song, from Carmen (viola cello duo)


Title: The Toreador’s Song, from the opera Carmen

Composer: Georges Bizet, arr. David Gable

Instrumentation: Viola and Cello

Printout: 4 pages

Note: The Toreador’s Song is one of the best-known arias from Bizet’s masterpiece, Carmen. More than being a catchy tune, however, the music imbues Escamillo (the toreador) with a flair for the dramatic and a self-aggrandizing ego.

This must-have piece is also available in the Bargain Bundle Carmen, Selected Highlights for Viola and Cello at significant savings.

The audio sample below includes the beginnings of both the verse and the more familiar refrain.
