Ponchielli – ‘Dance of the Hours” piano arrangement

An arrangement of Ponchielli’s “Dance of the Hours” from his opera La Gioconda, later adapted by Allan Sherman into the novelty song “Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh” (warning: listening to the Sherman song might permanently change your perception of the Ponchielli piece). Part of my free intermediate classical course. Click the image below to download the PDF.

“Legerissimo con grazia” means “as light as possible, with grace”.
