"Habanera" from Bizet's Carmen for alto saxophone and piano and suitable for performance in a concert, recital or church.
The solo part is for an advanced alto saxophone player and the piano accompaniment requires a competent intermediate to advanced performer.
This is the popular name for "L'amour est un oiseau rebelle" ("Love is a rebellious bird"), one of the most famous arias and sung by Carmen in scene five of the first act. It is based on a descending chromatic scale in first the minor and then the major key and was adapted from the habanera "El Arreglito", originally composed by the Spanish musician Sebastián Yradier.
