Product details

When an old family-run circus came to town, I remembered the wonder and excitement I experienced as a child being taken to the circus, where magic happened in and above the sawdust, under the bright lights.

Published by: Wirripang [979 0 720140 95 7] — 1 score (13p. -- A4 (portrait))

Difficulty: Advanced — Some chords stretch to the 9th; maintenance of strict tempo within variations; facility in runs.

Duration: 8 mins, 24 sec.

Contents note:

1. Parade (3 min., 25 sec.) -- 2. Catherine wheels (2 min., 38 sec.) -- 3. The pink ballerina on a white pony (2 min., 20 sec.).

Dedication note: Written for Katie Zhukov

First performance by Katie Zhukov — 13 Aug 11. "Thankyou Bundanoon" Concert, Bundanoon Memorial Hall

Composer's note:
An impressionistic, nostalgic review of the colour of the show and the thrilling feats of the performers passing by to the iconic music of the marching band that is still associated with the old-fashioned Circus.
