Program Notes

The history of the court jester is quite diverse depending on the country. They were either employed to entertain nobility or as an itinerant performer they would entertain common folk at such venues as fairs or markets. Their skills would include such things as songs, music, storytelling, acrobatics, juggling and/or magic.

- Program Note from publisher

In the words of the composer, this new selection “hopes to portray this whimsical entertainer by way of a light and buoyant set of melodic lines and rhythms.” Beginning marked ‘Andante,” a short introduction prepares a vibrant “Allegro spirito." A slower middle section leads to a complete recapitulation of the opening “Allegro” plus coda.
