This is the finale of Rossini’s William Tell Overture. This section is also known as “March of the Swiss Soldiers”. The popular rhythmic pattern is commonly associated with galloping horses both in cartoons and in real life.
This version was based on the original score. Instrumentation consists of a piccolo, a flute, two oboes, two clarinets, two bassoons, four french horns, two trumpets, three trombones, timpani, a triangle, cymbals, and section strings.
