This aria from the opera, Carmen, is probably the most popular habanera ever, lending itself in a superb fashion to the string orchestra. The cello is the anchor, providing the rhythmic and tonal structure on which the aria is built. The melody is shared by first violins and violas, and some shifting is involved. The bass part is technically easy, but needs to be "spot on" to be effective. With the optional tambourine and triangle, this new setting is as fun to play as it is to listen to. New Ohio MEA H.S. Class B String Orchestra for 2013.
