Georges Bizet is probably best known today for his opera Carmen. At its premiere, critics (and the audience) found the work unsatisfactory in both content and approach. However, the opera soon became a triumphant success and has since been staged regularly in opera houses throughout the world. This adaptation of the musical score for orchestra, a suite in four movements, retains the spirit of the original production. This is definitely an important new contribution to the repertoire for orchestra. * Movement 1 (1:09) * Movement 2 (1:39) * Movement 3 (1:35) * Movement 4 (2:29).
