Georges Bizet: Carmen Fantasy For Clarinet And Piano With Horácio Ferreira On Clarinet And Dávid Bekker On Piano
Fast fingers all round
It could be said that George Bizet is as much cursed by his most famous composition - Carmen. His other work is often unjustly hidden in its shadow. Nonetheless, Carmen is truly a magnificent piece. This intricate work demands the utmost dexterity and confidence of both players. The light touch required by the piano is more difficult to attain than playing loudly. Similarly for the clarinet, the cadenza is a very difficult work requiring very quick fingering. Enjoy Bizet’s beautiful work.
