Barcarolle (from The Tales of Hoffman)
By Jacques Offenbach / arr. Jack Bullock
Belwin Concert Band
3 (Medium Easy)
Barcarolle, one of the most famous operetta melodies, is presented here for concert band. Its "rolling" melody and simple harmonic structure have made it a favorite the world over. Written by one of the originators of the operetta musical form, Jacques Offenbach, it has endured for over 150 years. A historic work in a contemporary setting . . . a most musical gem!
