Introduction: 
JUBILISSIMO is jubilant, energetic music, full of lust for life, ebullient creativity, vital rhythmicity and formal, far-reaching uncontrollableness. It is expected that the players are willing to take risks and ready to reach their own limits. Melismatic jubilant songs, that are known from the ancient orient and were then adopted (e.g. as 'Alleluja') in the early years of Christian liturgy, are the inspirational model. Saint Augustinus defines the „Jubilus“ as 'sonus quidam significans cor partuire quod dicere non potest': as a joyful expression of the heart that cannot be expressed with mere words.
