“Entrance of the Gladiators” is a military march composed in 1897 by the Czech composer Julius Fučík. He originally titled it “Grande Marche Chromatique,” reflecting the use of chromatic scales throughout the piece, but changed the title based on his personal interest in the Roman Empire. The piece gained lasting popularity as a screamer march for circuses, often used to introduce clowns. Today it is known mainly by this association, and is commonly called “Circus music”.
