This piece was inspired by the composer watching his young son, Benny, playing ‘soldiers’ with his collection of teddy bears – how appropriate! But it made him think of the many character pieces which take the form of a ‘toy march’, the most notable examples being by Haydn, Tchaikovsky and Leon Jessel. Parade of the Clockwork Soldiers is in the form of a ‘patrol’ (starting and ending quietly with a louder middle) and aims to represent a band marching past the listener.
