CIRCUS SUITE

for flute (or oboe, bass clarinet, clarinet, bassoon or alto sax)
and piano



CIRCUS SUITE for flute (or oboe, bass clarinet, clarinet, bassoon or alto sax) and piano was composed in 1992 especially for children.

In 2004 the composer rewrote this work for WOODWIND QUINTET.
There is also a version for STRING ORCHESTRA.

There are five parts, each reflecting a circus scene.

In the introduction the listener is plunged in a typical circus atmosphere.
In the second part there are the jugglers and tightrope dancers (light and sharp).
Then comes the tamer, a bit mysterious and looking for danger.
The acrobats and the clowns are respectively supple and amusing.
At the end (part 5) there is the parade where all the artists present themselves to the public.

This is music which tries to stir up the imagination of children and adults.
