Léo Delibes

February 21, 1836 - January 16, 1891
born in Saint-Germain-du-Val, Sarthe, France, composed during the Romantic period
Léo Delibes (1836-1891) wrote his most important works for the stage. The ballets Coppélia and Sylvia have remained in the standard repertoire since their premieres, and the opera Lakmé, although not as frequently heard in full, yielded the "Bell Song," a favorite encore of coloraturas, and the "Flower Duet," a favorite of TV ad producers. Delibes studied with Adolphe Adam and worked as chorus master at the Paris Opéra and an organist before devoting himself to composition. His music is marked by lightness, elegance, wit, and charming melodies. After his stage music, his significant works are those for voice. ~ Patsy Morita, Rovi

A very magical piece. Very soothing and light on the heart.

I sang the flower duet with a friend of mine for a school talent show; we won grand prize, but I'm not sure we did it justice.
