Program Notes

Frigyes Hidas's Circus Suite is a musical voyage in an evening performance. The first movement, Entry Music,the proud parade of performers promenade before the audience. Clowns, the second movement is filled with the colors of jocularity through the excursions of the clowns. The Rope Dancer movement is a very graceful high-wire act depicted by the euphonium solo. A technical interesting act for the clarinets is found in The Juggler movement. An exciting and breathtaking fifth movement shows the Trapeze Artist at his high point in a successful Salto Mortale. On the finale we revisit the parade of performers as this great circus night ends.
