Tarantella Op. 26, No. 12

Tarantelle - Tarantella in D minor - From "Aus der Jugendzeit"



This Tarantella Op. 26, No. 12 by Hans Sitt was originally composed for the violin in the key of A minor.

It is part of the album Aus der Jugendzeit, Op. 26.

The tarantella is a traditional southern Italian folk dance characterized by a very fast tempo.

Traditionally, popular belief is that the tarantella is the dance one dances when bitten by a tarantula.

Indeed, the tarantula is a wolf spider so highly poisonous that its bite leads to a hysterical condition known as tarantism.

This score is a transcription for viola and piano.

It is set in the key of D minor.

This Tarantella in D minor, Op. 26, No. 12 is appropriate for Grade 5 viola students.

The viola part can be played entirely in the first position.

Duration : 02:12
