Composer of Paquita?


Recommended Posts

Was Paquita composed by Édouard Deldevez or Ludwig Minkus?


Or, from what I understood, by researching, the original music was by Edouard Deldevez and Ludwig Minkus' music was added in 1881 which were: Pas de trois for the first act, Grand pas classique and the Mazurka des enfants (Children's mazurka) for the last act.

The music of Paquita is generally credited to Minkus, however, I have not researched this and do not know about Deldevez. The recorded music that we have available all lists Minkus as the composer.
