Rossini's Overture to William Tell - La Jolla Symphony & Chorus

1/2/2020; 13 minutes

Rossini's 1829 opera "William Tell" is rarely performed today, but its Overture lives on as one of the most popular works in the classical repertoire. The Overture is essentially an instrumental suite written in four parts and performed without pause. The best-known section is the last, the allegro vivace, famously used as the rousing theme music for "The Lone Ranger" radio and TV series (and notoriously so in "A Clockwork Orange). Recorded on 11/03/2019. (#35398)
