Tune of the Day: The Flower Duet

arranged for three flutes

This arrangement for three flutes of the famous Flower Duet by Delibes was kindly contributed to our collection by Deborah Twiddy.

The duet originally takes place in Act I of Léo Delibes's opera Lakmé, first performed in Paris in 1883. It is sung by Lakmé (soprano), the daughter of a Brahmin priest, and her servant Mallika (mezzo-soprano), as they go to gather flowers by a river.
