Tune of the Day: Aragonaise

from “Carmen” by Georges Bizet, arranged for Flute solo

This Aragonaise is a lively Spanish dance designed to precede the fourth and last act of Georges Bizet's famous opera Carmen. The name “Aragonaise” means “dance of Aragon”, Aragon being a region in northeastern Spain.

This entr'acte was also included in Carmen Suite No. 1, compiled by Ernest Guiraud a few months after the composer's death.
