By Georges Bizet / arr. Jerry Brubaker
Belwin Concert String Orchestra
This aria, probably the most popular habanera ever, lends itself in a superb fashion to the string orchestra. Even in the opera score, the cello is the anchor, providing the rhythmic and tonal structure on which the aria is built. Incorporating many special effects, including optional tambourine and triangle, this new setting is as fun to play as it is to listen to. Truly a must for any string library.
