While the opera “Carmen” is very famous, “Carmen Suite No. 1” (preludes from all four acts) and “Carmen Suite No. 2” for orchestra (collecting famous melodies from the opera) are also beautiful and interesting pieces with frequent concert performances. This “Carmen Highlights” presents in medley style excerpts from both of these suites. Compared to the grand scale of the opera “Carmen”, this selection was constructed in a compact manner, but I tried not to lose the Spanish atmosphere of the Opera. Please try to promote the strengths of each song, especially with a variety of emotions.
