The Easy to Play series has been so stupendouly successful and we are delighted to present another book in the series!
The William Tell Overture is the overture to the opera William Tell, composed by Gioachino Rossini. William Tell premiered in 1829 and was the last of Rossini's 39 operas, after which he went into semi-retirement, although he continued to compose cantatas, sacred music and secular vocal music. The four-part overture, which lasts for approximately 12 minutes, paints a musical picture of life in the Swiss Alps, the setting of the opera.
The William Tell Overture has often been transcribed for solo Piano, and will therefore fit the repertoire of less experienced pianists in this easy-to-play (Grade 3-4) arrangement perfectly.
