Gioachino Rossini's "William Tell Overture" Sheet Music on Chromatik

This piece by Gioachino Rossini has become so deeply associated with horses that the comedian Billy Connolly jokingly defined an intellectual as someone “who can listen to the William Tell Overture without thinking of The Lone Ranger”. While he may have a point, it’s probably more a testament to the show’s supervisors for coming up with such a great pairing of visuals and sound. The horns sound so distinctly like horses galloping, it feels as if Rossini was completely wrong about the interpretation of his own music. Whatever image that you take away from this song, be it horses or advertisements, this classical piece will get your heartbeat racing with adrenaline.
