Parade of the Clockwork Soldiers by : Philip Sparke
This piece was inspired by the composer watching his young son playing “soldiers” with his collection of teddy bears. . .and made him think of the many character pieces that take the form of a toy march; the most notable examples being by Haydn; Tchaikovsky and Leon Jessel. Parade of the Clockwork Soldiers is in the form of a “patrol” (starting and ending quietly with a louder middle) and aims to represent a band marching past the listener. In fact; where the hall layout permits; it could be possible to add a little choreography to the piece; starting and ending with only a few instruments on stage.
