Circus Capers composed by Dennis Alexander. For Piano. Piano Solo; Sheet; Solo. Signature Series. Late Elementary. 4 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.39433).
All the fun of a circus is recreated in this humorous solo that features a melody that is tossed back and forth between the hands. The introduction begins with the sounds of the Big Top ‰ÛÒ a trill-like figure is divided between the hands and heralds the entrance of the show. Legato and staccato are used throughout the piece, making it an excellent study in articulation. The key of G major and the 4/4 meter compliment the mood of the piece.
