Massenet - Meditation from Thais

Sheet music for flute

Info: "Méditation" is a symphonic intermezzo from the opera Thaïs. The piece is written for solo violin and orchestra. The Méditation is performed between the scenes of Act II. In the first scene of Act II, Athanaël, a Cenobite monk, confronts Thaïs, a beautiful and hedonistic courtesan and devotée of Venus, and attempts to persuade her to leave her life of luxury and pleasure and find salvation through God. It is during a time of reflection following the encounter that the Méditation is played by the orchestra. In the second scene of Act II, following the Méditation, Thaïs tells Athanaël that she will follow him to the desert.
