This three-movement gem captures the composer's different impressions of Italy beautifully, evident in the programmatic titles of each movement - "Last night we danced the Tarantella," "The Sistine Chapel is staggeringly beautiful" and "The view from the top of Vesuvius is amazing." Take your students on a field trip to Italy without leaving the band room!
