Carmen Fantasy for Flute and orchestra
F. Borne: "Fantasie Brilliante" on Themes from George Bizet's opera "Carmen" for flute and piano was written in 1880, five years after the premiere of the opera. Fantasy was very popular form of composition at that time, showcasing capabilities of solo instrument.
François Borne (1840-1920) was a French flutist and composer. He was a solo flutist of the Bordeaux Symphony and Professor at Toulouse Conservatory. Due to Boehm's inventions, many composers took advantage of now fully chromatic instrument to showcase new possibilities of the flute.
The Fantasie Brilliante was one of the fantasies composed at the second part of the 19th century and greatly contributed to the flute repertoire.
