    Flying Acrobats

    After Shazbot's Space Circus, here's my Flying Acrobats.

    (Totally different in style; I'm not suggesting they should be compared! )

    This appeared on the General Discussion forum last November when DPDan kindly introduced me to the community, but it's never been posted here.

    Anyway, thought any new members would like to have a listen.

    Totally 100% GPO.

    Flying Acrobats

    Cheers
    Jon

    Your acrobats are thoroughly delightful, Mr. Jon! I enjoyed this very much.

    You are one talented bloke. Thanks for posting it.

    Thumbs up Re: Flying Acrobats

    Jon, this is perfect. Puts me into a clowning mood today. Wait, that's everyday! The strings, the woodwinds, the percussion ... all perfectly balanced and so real feeling it's hard to imagine otherwise.
    Great work!!!

    Wow, I almost missed this one...This was fun!!

    What a delightful melody... The title is certainly fitting. Definitely evokes images of circus fanfare!


    And I agree with comments that the rendering is superb!

    Terrific work!

    Jon,
    What a festive piece. Well done. The rendering, as has been pointed out, is superb. Your themes and their development are not only masterful but leave one wanting a bag of peanuts and a drink.

    I love it! Five stars and two thumbs up. And i like particularly the... appearance of something that sounds Russian or Eastern European... or maybe it is Hungarian Dance, I don't know but it sounds just fantastic, as does all of it.

    PS: It continues to be mind boggling to me that this can be done with GPO, amazing.
