Carmen Suite for eight horns by George Bizet, arr. Turner

$41.00 $28.70

Carmen is probably the most popular opera of all times. It is the most performed of all operas, with a universal appeal that transcends cultures and generations. It has been the most filmed opera in history. Written in 1874 and first performed in 1875, the year of Bizet’s death, it was harshly criticized and was not a success until after the composer’s death. Bizet’s masterly use of orchestral color heightens the dramatic pace and gives the whole opera an almost symphonic quality. The melodies are often uncomplicated and extremely engaging. Mr. Turner has captured all the charm and color of the original in this arrangement for horn octet. It is sure to please any audience as well as the musicians who perform it.

This arrangement has been recorded by the Berlin Philharmonic Horn Section.
