Programme Note: An arrangement by Martin Watson for clarinet quartet of an exciting Volta dance from around 1550, originally from Praetorius’ collection of 16th Century European dances. During the course of the dance, the male dancers took the female dancers around the waist and threw them upwards, hence the name.
