Fantaisie Brillante on Carmen by Bizet & Scène from Giralde by Adam for Flute and Piano
- Staff Pick
“A little gem!”
This is a good edition of the Borne Carmen Fantasy but it's lovely to have it paired with his transcription of a theme from a little-known opera by Adolphe Adam. This is actually an arrangement of a scene from the opera in which Adam has used the vocal part including the words. The writing is very florid and lends itself perfectly to the flute! It's a little gem!
