Bizet, (Alexandre Césare Léopold)
A brilliant pianist, Bizet also comp. for that instr. and his songs and church mus. are of high quality. A Sym. in C, 1855, of felicitous youthful charm, was disinterred in 1933 and f.p. in Basle cond. Weingartner, 26 Feb. 1935. If Bizet's fame rests largely on Carmen, all his pubd. work has colour, melody, and brilliant aptness of orchestration. But in practically all of Bizet's work, incl. Carmen, there are musicological pitfalls for the unwary writer who has not consulted the work of authorities such as Winton Dean concerning spurious edns., additions, and interpolations.
