Allegro Tempestoso
Lantz Berets

Tempestoso means “anger” in Italian, but also gives us our English word “tempest,” or storm.  Like any major storm or hurricane, this piece has a calm, hopeful section—the eye of the storm.  Your students will enjoy the lively rhythms and varying styles in this energetic piece.  $45.00
