Circus Suite

Posted by Tim Power on

 from teepee music publications 

A suite for brass quintet or ten-piece entitled CIRCUS.

This piece has 6 movements as follows:

1. Entry Parade - fanfare/march style

2. Clowns - Irregular time signatures; discordant elements

3. Trapeze - A waltz 3/4 style with occasional 7/8 sections for that element of "uncertainty"

4. Acrobats - Quick 2/4 scherzo with lots of florid quaver and semi-quaver passages

5. Jugglers - Essence of 3, 4 or 5 ball juggling reflected in the time signatures of 3/8 4/4 and 5/8

6. Finale - Reprise of the opening movement

The brass group compositions will include parts for a comprehensive percussion section including: xylophone, glockenspiel, vibraphone, 5x temple blocks, 3x tom toms, drum kit, timpani
