Rondeau des Métamorphoses and Cancan
Two lively numbers from Offenbach’s most famous operetta, La Vie Parisienne, arranged for string ensembles. The Rondeau des Métamorphoses is a light and lively melody, and the well-known Cancan brings visions of high-kicking dancers in brightly coloured costumes.
