Product Details


A Saltarello is an Italian folk dance, similar to a tarantella. Its main feature is the "leap" step, which comes from the Italian verb "saltare," meaning to jump. This is portrayed in the hooked bowings. The continuous, running motion is a good workout for all sections and requires clean finger action. Shifting work and string crossing are major features, and a strong sense of pulse is essential in the bass line. A piano part is included. It is not essential, but it could be played on an accordion or keyboard accordion to enhance to folk-music feel of this Loreta Fin piece. (2:10)
