Invasion of Clowns was not a piece planned in advance. Rather it was one that imposed itself at an inconvenient time. While I was busy completing an altogether more “serious” piece, the peculiar circus theme invaded my mind and demanded attention. Although prankish in nature, the Quintet is an allegory of life as a circus and the demands placed on us by others.
