This is the popular slow section of Rossini’s overture for the opera William Tell. Composed in 1829, this slow, imaginative piece has been kept alive in modern television, particularly in cartoons. The calm melody is often associated with scenes of a rising morning sun. This version is true-to-score, so the instrumentation and content is based directly on Rossini’s original score.
