Program Notes

This classic spicy Spanish theme is an excellent rhythmic contrast piece that is familiar to all. Teaching concepts include chromatic scales, melody vs. accompaniment playing, and extreme dynamics. All players get to play melody.

- Program Note by publisher


Habanera (music or dance of Havana, Spanish: La Habana) is the popular name for L'amour est un oiseau rebelle (Love is a rebellious bird), an aria from Georges Bizet's 1875 opera Carmen. It is the entrance aria of the title character, a mezzo-soprano role, in scene 5 of the first act. It is based on a descending chromatic scale followed by variants of the same phrase in first the minor and then the major key, corresponding to the vicissitudes of love expressed in the lyrics.

The score of the aria was adapted from the habanera El Arreglito, originally composed by the Spanish musician Sebastián Iradier.
