Reviews

...The keys used, range, articulation and dynamics are varied throughout with some challenges, and the composer manages to capture the mood of the circus, especially with the effects he uses on the CD.

Sarah Markham for Music Teacher Magazine

Alan Bullard has long proved himself not only a composer with an individual voice and much to say but also expert at writing for wind instruments... The layout and printing are clear with interesting piano parts that are not too difficult but are pianistic. All the numbers are tuneful and expressive. They will give pleasure to players and listeners alike. If a pianist is not available the CD links are clearly notated as an alternative.

The Association of Woodwind Teachers

...Alan Bullard is a highly-respected composer, teacher and examiner - occupations that give him invaluable experience in writing for players of all standards...
