Under the Big Top: Circus Marches April 30 2013, 0 Comments

New from Altissimo! Recordings!!  

Welcome to the Big Top, where feats of amazement happen every day! Lively music is the familiar soundtrack to this spectacle of wonder and awe, and this circus music is performed to enhance the atmosphere of the show for performers and audiences alike. While circus music encompasses many musical genres, including the waltz, ragtime, Latin rhythms and more, none are as popular as the circus march, also known as screamers. Ringleaders demanded the screamers to stir the audience and get them excited about an upcoming performance that was sure to thrill! Close your eyes and smell the popcorn as you envision the elephants stomping, the trapeze artists swinging, and the clowns juggling while you’re entertained with the fabulous circus marches presented on this album.
