Circus Waltz Macabre

Rachel Zimet

Grade 12, Montpelier High School

"I wrote this to explore more melodic passages rather than harmony and I focused on few chord progressions. The piece is a fast-moving circus waltz, jolly but in a minor and macabre fashion, with a major interlude. Most of my inspiration comes from Shostakovich. I don't know why you're listening to me and not him. Joking aside, have fun at my circus!"
