This colorful arrangement of the "Anvil Chorus" from Verdi's Il Trovatore begins with an energetic introduction played by all the strings. It is followed by the rousing main theme, which recalls the opera's Spanish gypsies as they strike their anvils at dawn and sing the praises of hard work and good times. While the grand melody is heard, players re-create the heavy anvil rhythm that makes this classic so memorable. (1:58) This title is available in SmartMusic.
