Program Notes

Commissioned for the 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede Showband of Calgary, Alberta, Samuel Hazo has created a stunning and inspired work for mature players. The title (taken from the Latin phrase “Jubilate Deo”) is indicative of the pervading sense of ceremony and jubilation. Bookended with a broad and powerful fanfare, the exuberant allegro section features a spirited pulse with mixed meters and soaring melodies. A dynamic percussion score is inherent throughout the work all the way to the dramatic finish.

-Program Note from publisher

This celebratory composition was commissioned for the 100th anniversary of the famous Calgary Stampede Showband of Calgary, Alberta. The title was created by combining the two-word Latin phrase "Jubilate Deo."

A brilliant fanfare provides an attention-grabbing opening statement. The joyful main theme is introduced in the spirited allegro section that features passages of alternating meters, bold brass statements, flowing 16th-note lines in the upper woodwinds, and effective, mature percussion writing. Material from the opening fanfare is revisited at the end, bringing the composition to a powerful conclusion. Well-scored with challenges for each section, the piece requires proper phrasing, precise execution of 16th-note and 32nd-note rhythms, careful observance of articulation and dynamic markings, and solid intonation in fff passages. This is a jubilant work that would be ideal as a concert opener or for a ceremonial event.

-Program Note from The Instrumentalist, April 2014, p. 40.

Jubilatéo was commission for the 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede Showband of Calgary, Alberta. This wonder ensemble has a rich history with the world-famous Calgary Stampede as well as numerous appearances around the globe as musical ambassadors of their city. This piece was premiered on February 28th, 2012 at the Rozsa Center on the University of Calgary Campus.

Jubilatéo is a word I created by combining the two-word Latin phrase Jubilate Deo (Trans. Praise to God.). This composition was written as music for a celebration. The opening fanfare is a broad and powerful introduction. It is meant to get the attention of the audience and it bookends the composition as it provides the ending ad well,only in double time. The main theme in the Allegro section is simply meant to sound joyful. It is first stated in "call and response" form, then its variations take it through a number of dynamic and meter changes. The piece closes with a grand major chord held through the percussion crescendo underneath to a glorious resonance at the end.
