Musical suite “Luna Park”

The Musical Suite was inspired by a simple and nice idea, to tell about a happy day of fun of children and young people in a somewhat special place. During the winter many, with great anticipation, look forward to this occasion arriving and are no longer in their skins when it, right on time, magically materializes in the large squares of so many of our cities.
When The Luna Park appears.

This is precisely the title of our suite “LUNA PARK,” and it consists of eight tracks corresponding to as many rides.

Imagine arriving there, one notices the big Ferris wheel from afar, smells the scents of pancakes and cotton candy. One hears the displacement of air as you pass by the Pirate Ship, the screams of children on the bumper cars and those who propose to enter the Haunted House or the Mirror Maze. Just a short distance away is the Roller Coaster waiting for the daredevils who have just finished challenging themselves to catch the rooster on the flying seats!

Each of these rides is expressed in music in the Suite pieces that have been written by four composers from Italy Serbia and Bosnia, until the entire Luna Park ride is completed. At the end of the ride everyone will be free to go back and enjoy themselves again and again on the ride they like best to make the magic of this beautiful day last as long as possible!

Composers involved: Matteo Firmi (Italy), David Mastikosa (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Maria Beatrice Orlando (Italy) and Ivana Radovanovic (Serbia).
