Flower Duet from Lakmé by Léo Delibes arranged for Soprano and Alto Sax Duet with piano or wind ensemble. This is one of the best known and most beautiful opera duets. It has become one of the most familiar numbers any composer has ever written. You can hear it in movies, on television shows, in elevators and shopping malls, and even in commercials. Written in the form of a barcarolle, the Flower Duet from Lakmé weaves together two beautiful melodic lines for the soloists and a gentle rocking accompaniment in the piano.
