Julius Fucik was born in Prague in 1872.

He is not a hugely familiar composer, probably due to the type of music he composed.  With a background in the military, most of his work was for military bands.  He composed over 400 military marches, polkas and waltzes.

Look at our arrangements of Entry of the Gladiators.

Works

Fucik’s two most famous pieces are the ‘Florentiner March’ and ‘Entry to the Gladiators’ also known as ‘Thunder and Blazers’ and ‘Grand Chromatic March’.  This arrangement became popular as a Screamer march, which is circus music to introduce clowns and stir up the crowd. It is also played for rousing concert performances, as in Last Night of the Proms.

Later Life

Fucik passed away in 1916 in Berlin at the age of just 44. He died due to ill health at a time when his band and music publishing company were failing due to the affects of the First World War.
