Talk:L'Arlésienne Suite No.2 (Bizet, Georges)

Kalmus Orchestral Parts Errata

Oboe 2

[A]+2 - the first note should be a dotted quarter note, the second should be an eighth note.
3. Menuet
[F] - this bar is missing a beat. The third beat should be a quarter note rest.

Suite by Ernest Guiraud

IV. Farandole
Tambourin - it is believed that the instrument called for is the tambourin provençal (field or long drum), not the tambourine. This is corroborated by author John Beck in his Encyclopedia of Percussion, where he notes that the German transcriber incorrectly translated the French word tambourin.
