Ponchiel­li was a famous nine­­teenth-cen­­tu­ry Ital­ian opera com­pos­er whose opera, La Gio­con­da, with its famous “The Dance of the Hours,” is still in the inter­na­tion­al reper­to­ry. He also served as the con­duc­tor of the Cre­mona Civic Band, for whom he com­posed more than sev­en­ty orig­i­nal works and an equal num­ber of tran­scrip­tions.
