Augusta Read Thomas Jubilee (2010)
First performance:
Juilliard Orchestra
Xian Zhang, conductor
New York, NY
April 30, 2010

I. fanfare: awaking rituals
II. caprice: effervescent arabesques
III. reverie: prayer for a departed friend
IV. gambol: whimsical virtuosic romp

Each of the four movements may be performed independently of the rest of the work, as short, stand-alone orchestral compositions by their individual movement names. Note that the various movements have slightly differing instrumental requirements. When played separately, they may require a smaller orchestra than the forces that are needed to perform all four movements of Jubilee.
