She wrote it herself, but she doesn't really do titles, so it's called "Tarantella"...

Yup, definite tarantella feel, nice. I've been playing the piano accordion version but the Thanksgiving holiday season madness has descended around here so I don't guess I am going to record that version......thanks to everyone who participated this month...you rock!

Well it's far from being November, but to keep the thread going I thought I'd post this from my friend: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0uSNSBOULU" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Part of the summer solstice celebrations in King's Heath, Birmingham. I'm posting it to celebrate a nice event and also to celebrate my friend being back out there playing after smashing up her right hand quite badly 3 years ago.

OK, Tarantella time in November:

A waltz is 3/4 time.

A Tarantella is 6/8 time.

So then simply play a waltz twice as fast ???? :b

B. Loffet made a YT video with "Sbrando", a fine tarantella style tune.
The tab and staff notation sheet music is on his website.

A great tune also for the CBA and PA, I play it on the CBA.

Good interesting post Stephen, thank you - I had heard Sbrando played, but by English people under the name of Smarlon ( :lol: or :roll: depending what mood you're in) and sounding quite English. With this video I get what's going on. And though I am no more Italian than Jimmy Shand was, being a bit obsessed with some of this music, I was all ready to complain that you don't get tarantella from Piedmont etc etc. but really there is a strong family resemblance with the saltarello from Abruzzo and the areas around and that is sometimes seen as a type of tarantella. Also the way the B section drops down is like lots of old tunes from the south. Just goes to show how music doesn't have any clear boundaries and everything is connected.

Here's a link: http://youtu.be/jbwQXARBwcc" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
(Edited - wrong link posted at the first attempt)
Perhaps a bit of an everyday performance from the great Carmelo Pansera, but Ninello Verduci is always great and I find it quite comic that someone is trying to interrupt them.

indeed, it is impossible to make clear boundaries between music genres. Music crosses every border line.
Found some interesting info on the (s)brando, branle and the likes here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Branle#Branles_de_village" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Loffet seems to have awakened intrest in this "Sbrando" folk piece, some others have made YT videos of this piece.

Every country/region made it's own variants of these dance types, maybe it's easier to describe/group these folk dances by meter and rhythm ( 6/8 or 3/4 or ..., or a combination of meters)
I read somewhere already in the renaissance the jig, gigue, giga, tarantella dances were all over Europe.

Well it's November, and to continue this fine tradition, in spite of dodgy facial expressions, loose bass buttons and parking charges, to prove to myself that I have picked up a box this year I thought I would post this 30 second video.
