    Default Ta-daaah!

    I'm sure you're all familiar with TA-DAAAH! Can you cite any specific works in which TA-DAAAH! occurs, usually as an ending?
    The first one which comes to mind for me is the William Tell Overture.

    In Beethoven's 2nd Symphony, TA-DAAAH! occurs right at the end. The front end, that is.

    The very end of Kalinnikov's 2nd symphony.
    The end of Raff's 3rd symphony.

    Pretty cool, eh?

    Just hover your mouse over each image - you don't have to click anything - and you can "Ta-Da" to your heart's content -

    TONS of Rossini operas will do that Ta-Da thing at the end of their slow sections before going into the faster sections. Barber of Seville is first one that comes to mind, then Semiramide.

    Lots of Ta Daahs in Copland's Circus Music from the Red Pony Suite.

    I think he's right - it's not at the very end, but at the two bar prior to your image. Three TADAs.

    My fondest memory of ta-daaa is somewhere in Rossini's L'Italiana in Algeri.
