Luigi ZaninelliLuigi Zaninelli is one of the hardest working composers of wind band music today. He is a prolific composer with beautifully engaging works that are the antithesis to all of those "cookie-cutter" pieces we are so familiar with.

Get to know Luigi's mastery of the artform by checking out some of his newest works below.

Song & Dance (Gr. 2.5 | ca. 3:15)
These two short yet delightful pieces were adapted from solo piano pieces by Zaninelli. The song, The River, is an elegant new setting of a lovely English Folk Song. It is quickly followed by Shadow Ridge Rag, a spirited dance with infectious syncopation and some some charming harmonic surprises.

The Castle of Saint Angelo (Gr. 3.5 | ca. 5:40)
The Castle of Saint Angelo, built in 139AD, has a rich history in Rome – from being used as a mausoleum to a fortress to a papal residence and place of refuge for the pope. It is a magnificent example of the temporal and spiritual power that embodies Rome. Zaninelli brilliantly captures these ideas in this 5-1/2 minute work for wind orchestra.

Nostalgic Dances (Gr. 4.5 | ca. 9:00)
The three-movement suite Nostalgic Dances was inspired by experiences Zaninelli had as a pianist during the second world war, playing waltzes, fox trots, polkas, rhumbas, square dances, cha-chas, tarantellas, etc.
