Using an amusement park theme, it' s fun for performer and audience alike.
The first movement, "Entrance", begins with a fanfare anticipating the excitement to be found beyond the gateway. "Main Street" captures scenes of an organ grinder playing, clowns handing out balloons and a ferris wheel in the distance. The "Haunted House" uses frightening chromatics and "Merry-Go-Round" is a graceful waltz. "Roller Coaster" is the fast-paced finale...it' s electrifying, yet one can' t help laughing with excitement and joy. Surely you have experienced this before.
Create your own amusement park as you visualize, fantasize and perform the piece.
