Kammer-Fantasie über Carmen, BV284
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The last Sonatina, No 6, entitled Kammer-Fantasie über Carmen (1920), is a short paraphrase based on the Act 4 chorus, the Flower Song (with Carmen’s fate motif, characterized by an augmented second, as a transition), the Habanera, and the Prelude to Act 1, with a coda (marked Andante visionario) based on the fate motif. Despite its virtuosity, this attractive work is not so expansive as many examples of the operatic paraphrase.
