François Borne: Fantasy Brilliante On Carmen With Emmanuel Pahud On Flute And Élodie Soulard On Accordion

François Borne: Fantasy Brilliante On Carmen With Emmanuel Pahud On Flute And Élodie Soulard On Accordion

Variations on Bizet’s work

As an keyboardist himself, Francois Borne’s compositional skill in this work comes from his understanding of the instruments for which this piece is scored. The instantly recognisable melody from Carmen appears after an orchestral introduction. Borne’s variations require truly expert dexterity from the flautist, who loops round arpeggios in between each note of the main melody.
