Musician's or Publisher's Notes
Ransom Wilson's Carmen Fantasy for Flute and
Orchestra is based on the Fantaisie Sur
Carmen by François Borne, which treats the best known themes in brilliant
coloratura. Borne was a professor of flute at the Toulouse Conservatory with an
interest in fashioning new repertoire for his instrument. Ransom Wilson, professor of flute at Yale University, went on to include previously omitted themes and to
remove material that did not exist in the original opera. Jessica
