Carmen for Four
Bizet, G

Musicians Publications presents Georges Bizet s Carmen for Four arranged for flute quartet by Trudy Kane. This Suite for Flute Quartet is based on five selections from the opera Carmen and is scored for 4 C flutes. Movement I is based on the 4th act Entr acte , Movement II is based on the 3rd act Entr acte , Movement III uses music from the Sequidilla in the 1st act, and Movement IV is based on the 2nd act Entr acte plus a section of the Finale from the 1st act.

Georges Bizet composed several operas, including The Pearl Fishers , before Carmen , but the latter is universally considered his masterpiece and still one of the most popular operas on today s stages. Sadly, Bizet did not live to see his story of the fatal love between a gypsy woman and a renegade soldier become a worldwide success: the premiere at the Opera-Comique, just weeks before his untimely death, met with little enthusiasm from either public or critics. The story was considered too sordid for a family opera house, and the music so familiar today even to those who never attend opera baffled audiences: one critic called it dull and obscure ; others, incredibly, found it tuneless and steeped in Wagnerism, meaning the orchestra was too dominant. - Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra, 2014
