Your orchestra will love the chance to play these ever-popular tunes from Ponchielli's opera La Gioconda, as arranged by Richard Meyer. Instantly recognizable to any audience, this arrangement retains the sound of the original and gives students a chance to develop the variety of techniques needed to perform two very different styles of dance music. The key has been changed (from E major to G major) and the time signature simplified (from 4/8 to 4/4), but none of the fun is missing! (3:20).
