Here's Gioachino Rossini's William Tell Overture (Finale) played on wine bottles. What better than great Italian wine to play a song by an Italian composer? Thanks to Mezzacorona for sending me great bottles and wine! You can check them out on Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/Mezzacorona, on Twitter - http://twitter.com/mezzacoronawine

The William Tell Overture is the overture to the opera William Tell (original French title Guillaume Tell), whose music was composed by Gioachino Rossini. William Tell premiered in 1829 and was the last of Rossini's 39 operas, after which he went into semi-retirement, although he continued to compose cantatas, sacred music and secular vocal music. The overture is in four parts, each following without pause.

There has been repeated use (and sometimes parody) of parts of this overture in both classical music and popular media, most famously as the theme music for The Lone Ranger in radio and television shows. It was also used as the theme music for the British television series The Adventures of William Tell.

The Finale, often called the "March of the Swiss Soldiers" in English, is in E major like the Prelude, but is an ultra-dynamic galop heralded by trumpets and played by the full orchestra. It alludes to the final act, which recounts the Swiss soldiers' victorious battle to liberate their homeland from Austrian repression. Although there are no horses or cavalry charges in the opera, this segment is often used in popular media to denote galloping horses, a race, or a hero riding to the rescue. Its most famous use in that respect is as the theme music for The Lone Ranger, so famous that the term "intellectual" has been defined as "a man who can listen to the William Tell Overture without thinking of the Lone Ranger."The Finale is also quoted by Dmitri Shostakovich in the first movement of his Symphony No. 15.
