Augusta Read Thomas, "Magneticfireflies"


Augusta Read Thomas

Born: April 24, 1964, Glen Cove, New York


Duration: 5 minutes

Composer Augusta Read Thomas describes Magneticfireflies as "very rhapsodic, lyrical, rich and majestic, but also quite playful." In the score, she writes "One of the main intentions of this music is the juxtaposition between stark, bold, individual colors, such as a loud solo trumpet, Mahler style, with a completely blended timbre, Debussy style."
