From the Publisher

After a successful collaboration with the National Flute Orchestra and Jongleur, it was suggested to me that a piece to compliment it would be a pleasing concert item.  Trapeze is essentially programmatic. The introduction and ending have no resemblance to the main body of the piece. Imagine here introductions and preparations made before the actual performance begins.  The overall mood is fun and entertaining with a slight sense of trepidation. The continuous semiquaver movements denote the continuous back and forth repetition of the swinging of the trapeze, where the slightly disjointed melody gives a feeling of anticipation. What is coming next? How high? How fast?  The conclusion imitates the introduction, very slightly changed, as this time we have dismounting and taking bows.  Hopefully both the performers and audience will feel somewhat uplifted.

Difficulty guide: 7-8
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
