Georges Bizet, unfortunately for himself, belongs to a group of illustrious composers such as Mozart, Schubert and to a certain degree J.S. Bach who didn’t get to experience the enormous and enduring success of their music during their own lifetimes. Bizet died a sudden and untimely death in June 1875, only three months after the unsuccessful première of his opera Carmen at the Opéra-Comique in Paris. The opera’s première in Vienna in October that same year was a global triumph. Consequently, even though it only took a few more months for Carmen to become an instant success, Bizet didn’t live long enough to see his fame established.

The two Carmen suites were put together after Bizet’s death by a former fellow student of his, Ernest Guiraud. These suites can easily be called a collection of Carmen’s ‘greatest hits’. On this album they are combined with the Arlésienne suites No. 1 and 2, Bizet’s other hugely popular set of orchestral suites, which are taken from the incidental music he composed for L’Arlésienne, a tragedy by French novelist Alphonse Daudet.

In this 1978 recording of the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Neville Marriner the suites are performed by one of the world’s most renowned orchestras coupled with one of the most distinguished conductors of the 20th century.

Music by Bizet and Granados


The Places

The ancient city of Seville, capital of Andalucía, was an Iberian settlement, of importance during the period of Roman domination and, after the Moorish conquest of the 8th century, part of the Caliphate of Córdoba. It retained importance under other Moorish rulers until its reconquest by Fernando III in 1248. It enjoyed the height of prosperity after the discovery of America in 1492.

The Music

Music for the tour includes two of the suites drawn from the French composer Georges Bizet’s opera Carmen, first staged in Paris in 1875 and drawing on Spanish traditions for its plot and setting and for its transformation of traditional Spanish dances. There are also Spanish Dances by the composer Enrique Granados.
