Claude T. Smith’s lively ’Tarantella’ from ”Incidental Suite” (for Band) is breathtaking as a fiddle tune in this new adaptation for string orchestra and percussion. After a quick introduction by the violas and low strings, the violins take off playing a lilting-with-a-hitch melody. The tune gets thrown around the sections before landing on a brief fugue. It returns full force only to dissipate at full speed to end with a twinkle.
