The overture to Rossini’s opera William Tell is a fairly large scale work in four section and lasting some twelve minutes in length. However, it is the finale of the overture which is one of the most iconic pieces of music. This March of the Swiss Soldiers is a dynamic cavalry charge and galop often used in popular media to denote galloping horses, a race or a hero riding to the rescue. Itsd most famous use in that respect is as  the theme music for the radio and then TV show The Lone Ranger. It was also used to great comic effect by Spike Jones and his City Slickers and it also found its way into the first movement of Shostakovich’s 15th Symphony!
