Program Notes

King composed this march under the pseudonym Carl Lawrence, and dedicated it to the Yankee Robinson Circus Band and its bandmaster, Theodore Stout, while King was a member of the band playing baritone horn. This style of “Persian” or “Oriental” march was frequently used in the circus to accompany wild animal acts, complete with Turkish, Persian or Indian costumes. The march is in cut-time meter ( = 120) and alternates between F minor and A major throughout. This march also avoids many of the technical demands presented in King’s more difficult circus marches such as Barnum & Bailey’s Favorite and Robinson’s Grand Entree.
