"Try to imagine a man alone, his mind clouded and full of sleep, in a point of the night just before dawn, surrounded by darkness and a gloomy and impenetrable forest. Out of breath, panting, the man sees ahead of him a hill and he already feels that once he gets to the top the light will be able to reach him more quickly.
So he begins to climb it, but the ascent is tiring and he is afraid of not making it".
This is my "INFERNO"
for string orchestra, clarinet and choir (SSAATTBB).
