Description
The subtitle 'For a young elephant' of 'Circus Polka' composed by Stravinsky is due to the piece's original use as music for a ballet performance with 50 elephants and the same number of ballerinas. The effective and inventive composition ranks among the modern classics of the 20th century and is presented here in arrangements for saxophone quartet or saxophone ensemble.
