Louis Moreau Gottschalk's "Grand Tarantelle" for Piano and Orchestra (Opus 67)

YouTube caption: "This bravura toe-tapping showpiece was discovered after Louis Moreau Gottschalk's death in 1869 in versions for piano solo and piano duet. It is heard here in Hershy Kay's exhilarating orchestration in which Reid Nibley is accompanied by the Utah Symphony under Maurice Abravanel. (Vanguard Classics CD 08 4051 71)."

Watch and hear Nadia Weintraub's rendition here.
