From the composer:
Joy Song was composed for Jonathan Aubrey in May 2013. It is in four sections, each an aspect of joy. To an extent it mirrors one traditional four-movement design used in 18th- and 19th-century sonata-style pieces: Allegro, Scherzo, Andante, and Finale, but in extreme miniature. It mines the expressive potential of the clarinet to portray this most basic human emotion.
Commission/Dedication: Commissioned by and dedicated to Jonathan Aubrey.
Premiere: First performed July 13, 2015, at the Etihad Modern Art Gallery in Abu Dhabi by Jonathan Aubrey.
