ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The music that accompanies Circus Flora and its magical show, Da Capo, comes to life on this new sound track. Award-winning composer, Miriam Cutler, has created a thrilling score for Da Capo and added a bonus track from an earlier Circus Flora production, "Passport For Flora".

Based in St. Louis since 1985, Circus Flora currently makes its home in the Grand Center Creative & Cultural District of the city. Over the last decade, the circus big top has also been featured at such prestigious venues as the Spoleto Festival USA, Lincoln Center and the Kennedy Center.

Los Angeles-based film composer Miriam Cutler has been writing, producing, and performing music for over 20 years. Her evocative scores have graced numerous narrative features and award-winning documentaries, as well as television, corporate videos, cartoons, and even two circuses. She's known for her versatility, her soulful integration of world music styles, and her enthusiasm for working collaboratively.

Cutler began her musical career as a singer/horn player in several bands, including the popular MYSTIC KNIGHTS OF THE OINGO BOINGO. She also led THE NEW MISS ALICE STONE LADIES SOCIETY ORCHESTRA and the jazzy SWINGSTREET, writing most of their music and arrangements, producing several recordings, and touring with them. Her love of jazz also led to a stint co-producing albums for Polygram-Verve including Joe Williams (nominated for a Grammy), Nina Simone, Marlena Shaw, and Shirley Horn.

Jimmy Carter

Transcending, ethereal, brilliant music.
We enjoyed Circus Flora several years ago when in St. Louis. The music was amazing, but the sound in my head had grown steadily faint. I bought Klezmer trying to get the sound... Now the music is available! Circus Flora: Da Capo is everything I would have hoped - rich and transcending, ethereal and brilliant. Please don't make this the last recording.

This is a very light magical music. I Know quite a lot of circus music, Da Capo is very special and inspiring. I liked the funny letter that came with the confirmation of the order and Circus Flora's homepage is brilliant.

Wonderful sound!
It was just a wonderful sound. A real hit for circus fans but far more than that. Excellent!

Circus music with the gypsy theme of Circus Flora
Loved the CD because it transforms me back to the Circus Flora ring every time I hear it. I've heard it a lot because my five year old has played it about a hundred times in the few weeks we've had it. I would characterize it as child friendly as well.
