    Default What is this (maybe Bizet) piece of music?

    The theme I'm asking about begins at 15:33 of this video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQAkLSCsOIY

    The whole video is of Karen Kornienko's piano fantasy/suite based on music from Bizet's Carmen, but includes a couple of excerpts from elsewhere (there's one from L'Arlesienne earlier on) - and this one which I cannot identify but used to hear quite a lot on the radio - the movement in question begins at 13:44 but 15:33 is where a clearer statement of the theme happens.

    Thanks in advance.

    Charming, although it doesn't strike me as particularly "bohemian"
