PXD008 Flower Duet - Delibes, L. (PDF DOWNLOAD)


"Sous le dôme épais" from Lakmé

The Flower Duet from Delibes' Opera Lakmé is  probably equally well known for its use in the British Airways advert and, more recently, in the film "50 Shades of Grey". In this charming arrangement for intermediate players, the Flute and Oboe  share the  lyrical melody accompanied by the darker tones of the Clarinet.
