La Danza (Rossini/Respighi)

Program note
La Danza is a playful Neapolitan tarantella, composed by Gioacchino Rossini that became world famous in the orchestration of Ottorino Respighi (La Boutique fantasque). The latter arranged the music for a ballet, and you can certainly hear that inspiration: it’s hard to sit still during this fresh whirlwind.
