Intermezzo from 'Cavalleria Rusticana' - Pietro Mascagni $38.00

Ontermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana for wind concert bandThe renowned Intermezzo from ‘Cavalleria Rusticana’ in an accessible arrangement for concert band by Mark Armstrong. Although Pietro Mascagni (1863-1945) wrote other operas, none matched the success of Cavalleria Rusticana, which was played worldwide and influenced many other composers of the time. This one-act opera is a concise, passionate tale of Sicilian peasants, with lashings of love, jealousy and tragic death.

The famous Intermezzo is a serene interlude played to an empty stage representing the calm before the storm, the final climax of the death of Turiddu. (band.003)
