Habanera

composer: Bizet, Georges (arr. by Roland Brom)
title: Habanera
publisher: Kendor
level: Junior High
range: f#’’
description: This is an arrangement of a famous melody from the Bizet opera, Carmen. Because is is such a familiar melody, it should be easily accessible to most 2nd and 3rd year players. To play it in the proper style will require some coaching, but it gives the student the opportunity to be expressive and to explore an “exotic” style. The main difficulty is the somewhat complex rhythm found in a few spots; overall, the piece should be well received. (1:20)
