Monday Music: Bacarolle (Offenbach)

"Barcarolle" by Jacques Offenbach performed by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra at the New Years concert from 2010. The Vienna New Year's concert is always held in the "Großer Saal" (Large Hall) of the Musikverein . Barcarolle is from the opera "The Tales of Hoffmann." The score was used in the movies, "Hotel New Hampshire" and "Life Is Beautiful." (To hear the libretto written by Jules Barbier go here)
