BIZET, G.: Carmen Suites Nos. 1, 2 / L'Arlésienne Suites Nos. 1, 2 (Barcelona Symphony and Catalonia National Orchestra, P. González)

Despite the scandal it created when first staged in 1875, Carmen has subsequently become one of the world’s most popular operas. The love affair at its heart shocked contemporary audiences but the music is imperishably vibrant and exciting—so much so that, after the composer’s death, his friend Ernest Guiraud arranged two suites from the opera. Here the Toreador’s Song and the graphically sensuous Seguidilla and Habanera dances are heard in all their orchestral glory. The two suites from L’Arlésienne contain music of great charm and refined elegance.
