Georges Bizet

October 25, 1838 - June 3, 1875
born in Paris, France, composed during the Romantic period
French composer Georges Bizet (1838-1875) did not leave a large body of completed works, but several are at the core of the classical repertoire. Carmen, which is notable for the composer's unerring sense of dramaturgy, and for its wealth of memorable melody and evocative orchestral writing, has been called "the perfect opera," and includes several of the most popular arias of all time, including the "Habanera" and the "Toreador Song." The Pearl Fishers is at the fringe of the operatic repertoire and contains the most famous duet for tenor and baritone, "Au fond du temple saint." Bizet's L'Arlesienne suites are concert favorites. ~ Stephen Eddins, Rovi

Hard to believe this charming symphony was written by a 17 year old kid in school. And so lucidly orchestrated , too.

Lol. I didn't read the opera part and I was waiting for either a violin to come in with the melody or a trumpet and I was trying to figure it out the first 5 seconds. I was like what is this ?!

No one can sing Habanera the way that Grace Bumbry can; she is Carmen and was meant for the role!

Please quit hogging up the msg boards with these statements about one thing you tried or another as not being fake especially once it's already been posted. One post is enough or you're just being rude. Most people do not come on here to be bombarded with information. Please heed my warning... once is enough!! I'm looking into a way to have some of this idiotic behaviour blocked for good....

This freaked me out This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this on ten comments in the next ten minutes, you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain you will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry This freaked me out This isn't fake

The photos of these guys and being able to see what they look like is cool too. You might meet them on a bus or pass them on the street and you could say hi! (and don't tell me you don't know somebody who looks like Georges Bizet...Well , hi Georges!) You just might get lucky. DMB

.....and oh, cat.artbykop i w o d a , an old Lacota Sioux Indian maxim I got from an old Lacota Sioux Indian is that A man lives as long as the last person who remembers him. Art is communicatio n and has a point of origination and point of reciept. The absence of one or the other means no art. As a fellow admiring listener I hope that helps. Chow. DMB

Say, this is really a refined, BMW, pollo pony, tea and croissant crowd on this station. You hoyde-toyde arristocrate types don't mind if a dirty ol ex-truck driver horns in do you? I used to think opera ----ed until I stumbled across Luciano Pavarotti one day. Increadable voice, magnificent man. Same way with classical music. And now I'm a sponge for both. So, whaddah ya say guys? You have a croissant and George Bizet for me? (I'll settle for a stale Kaiser roll and Lawerance Welk.) DMB
