The Toreador’s Song, from Carmen (violin cello duo)
Title: The Toreador’s Song, from the opera Carmen
Composer: Georges Bizet, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin and Cello
Printout: 4 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 piece is a must-have for gig musicians and opera lovers.
The Toreador’s Song and two other popular marches from Carmen are included in the Bargain Bundle Carmen, Selected Highlights for violin and cello, Set 3.
