Enter the Gladiators or sometimes called Entry of the Gladiators.

That link tells you a bit about the composer, which I just found out when I Googled.

I never knew the name until I read John of Brisbane's thread requesting circus music a couple of years ago.

I'm definitely going to have to learn this one, and maybe some others by the same composer. Thanks for starting this thread, Clinton!

Those of use with a 'Classical Music' background are usually well acquainted with this song.

It's a great one on the Piano Accordion - hard work though. It also used to often be played on those wonderful 'orchestra on a waggon' punched card wind driven sound machines from the turn of the 19/20th century. It's a great show piece for them - uses everything, especially the percussion section. It's also usually used in circuses a lot.

Interestingly, it is claimed that all of the songs used at the SARA website are 'public domain'... see whysound, including many things that I know the author of. There is a wide range there, including "You Are My Sunshine"...

Thanks for the sheet music, Masato! I've been wanting to learn this one for a long time, it being the quintessential circus piece, but I didn't know what it was called.

It is one of the classical pieces used in many Silent Movies too. Works for animated chase scenes.

You may be right, Foolestroup, but I'll never be able to hear it without at the same time imagining trick ponies, dancing poodles, and clowns in tiny fire trucks.

For whatever reason, the links above won't link. I'd love to find standard notation for "Thunder and Blazes" and my usual sources have run dry (or I'm incompetent). Usually I try to buy from musicnotes.com or wherever, but they don't recognize the many and various names of the piece.

Help please?

Thanks as always.

Peace, Mooh.

*Embarrassed*

Please disregard my request. I found it in Hal Leonard's "The Real Little Classical Fake Book" on my own bookshelf! The print is extremely small and I will have to enlarge it. There is no harmony (except guitar chords!), just melody, but that's fine.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Peace, Mooh.
