La Danza (Tarantella Napoletana) for flute quintet
This Italian Tarantella is one of the most famous in the world. It reminds us of the ancient legend about the best remedy against the poison from a tarantula's bite as being to dance a wild, quick round dance: a Tarantella! If you listen to this delightful, vivid dance, you may become convinced of the magic healing powers of music. This arrangement provides a virtuoso task especially for the alto and bass flutists, and is a sheer pleasure to play as an ensemble.
