Program Notes

This exciting and entertaining circus march, first published in 1917, was composed by the American march composer Karl L. King (1891- 1971) as he was about to become the director of the famous Barnum & Bailey “Greatest Show on Earth” Circus Band. The work follows a traditional march form, and modulates from Eb major to Ab major at the trio. The work beautifully demonstrates King’s gift for creating interesting melodies and countermelodies.
