ABC Wednesday

The letter this week is the elegant T

T is for Tarantella

Continuing the musical theme from last week, here is a wonderful video of David Harris and Jelani Eddington   playing Gottschalk's Grand Tarantella.  These two musicians have graced this Blog before, but they give such a great performance I couldn't resist adding them again for your enjoyment....



And here is a gypsy version of the Tarantella Calabrese that should make you want to dance!



For more T's visit here at ABC Wednesday, with thanks to Mrs. Nesbitt and her kind helpers.

My father played the organ and I always remember him talking about dancing feet on the foot pedals - wonderful!

If it wasn't for my arthritic knee Hildred I would be up there dancing - as it is my feet were tapping.

LOVE it! Especially the gypsy version!

Great music, I'd be pushed to dance to the first one. I can never hear Tarantella without thinking of the Hilaire Beloc poem, and now its running through my head.
