The musical performance is excellent. I like the way the "hand play" is filmed. Very impressive.

By the way, William (or Wilhem) Tell is our national hero). He was the one who (in the 12th century) fought our oppressors, the Austrians.

But did he really? It seems that he never existed and simply is a myth. But he still is our national hero.

I just looked it up and yes I know the story of William Tell, the arrow and the apple. I never knew it came from Switzerland though.
They write stories but not where they come from. Its a great story and the music fits it well because its spirited with an air of freedom and escape. You know a piece is good when you can sit and visualize a story from it.
