Details

Entrance of the Gladiators by Czech composer Julius Fucik is a military march composed in 1897. It was soon after subtitled “Thunder and Blazes”. It has become a legendary “screamer march” for circuses to introduce the clowns.

The march is in three sections with some very lyrical moments. It is followed by the chromatic “break” section featuring the Low Brass. The final trio section is also lyrical and chromatic at the same time. When played as a screamer, the tempo is often taken to extremes.

Wes Ballenger has done an amazing job of arranging this famous march for a virtuosic Trombone Quintet.
