    " T a r a n t e l l a "

    Music Lovers,

    Here is some Italiano-style music that I wrote this morning.

    This is my "Tarantella" in A minor, featuring two instances of the GPO Steinway piano.

    Ciao,

    Larry A.

    Way too much Pizza Larry!
    Me feet won't stop dancing! Love it. Nice arrangement! I'm picturing a room full of people dancing and having a great time at an Italian wedding. Nice!

    I am glad that my music invokes Italian visages. That was what I was attempting to do.

    I am considering adding a full string orchestra. Would that add to it or detract from it?

    I appreciate your listening, Mikey. Thanks.

    A challenge -- not just strings but accordian or concertina to accent the "folk".

    There is little in concert boks for these instruments and orchestra.

    Wow, Larry, you wrote this THIS MORNING??? AMAZING! I guess when you have the rules under your belt the way you do, something like this is no sweat. I love those transitions! I can hear the throng clapping and shouting as they move into the next section of the dance! Just absolutely delightful and energetic!

    I appreciate it, L.A. Dude. Thanks for your nice comments.

    Fast is not always good. Everyone should work at his or her own pace. I was born in a hurry.

    Larry,

    Very nice piece. I might suggest that you keep any enhancements to it as light as possible using a small ensemble instead of a string section. But then again there are many ways to flavor the suit the personal taste.
