Joseph Compello has created a musical journey for string orchestra, featuring Pierrot, the sad clown. This popular French folk song's simple theme and variations, along with narration, will engage even the youngest of players. The narration also allows a brief rest between movements for the orchestra. All instruments will perform the melody at some point in the composition. This piece will make that first concert for the beginners a surefire success. Duration: 7:22.
