Tarantella from Incidental Suite CTS-8030-00.jpeg

“Tarantella” from Incidental Suite is the first movement of this suite originally scored for concert band. Claude T. Smith has elevated the basic meaning of tarantella creating engaging rhythmic interest throughout the duration of the movement. This flexible arrangement allows ensembles to perform the work with as few as fourteen musicians providing accessibility and flexibility for numerous instrumentation needs, while still allowing a full ensemble sound.

*The posted recording is based on the full band scoring but aligns with the suggested preferences for either woodwinds/strings or brass suggested in the score.
