The beautiful ‘seduction’ aria from “Samson et Dalila” by French composer Camille Saint-Saens is wonderfully realized with the flugelhorn performing the role of the sultry seductress. The trombone is also featured, playing the part of Samson in the last chorus. Any group wishing to do justice to this arrangement is strongly encouraged to listed to a few recordings of singers performing it first. Marilyn Horne and Elina Garanca are good places to start.
