Chopin’s Tarantella in A-flat major, Op. 43 is a musical composition for solo piano. Chopin wrote it in 1841 and published it the following year. The Tarantella was Chopin’s final piece in the fashionable genre of virtuoso piano music in the Romantic style exemplified by his Etudes , Prelude s, Polonaises , and Scherzos . Chopin’s tarantella is a piece in A-flat major, set in time with an even rhythm at ~126 bpm. Chopin was not the only composer who used this metre: Paganini’s Caprice No. 2 also uses a meter of 126 bpms, but Chopin’s Tarantella is more dance-like than Paganini’s Caprice No.2, Chopin had encountered the tarantella during his travels through Italy in 1838, Chopin uses both sixteenth-note runs and eighth-note figurations throughout the piece.
