Sheet Music: Score
Inferno : for clarinet & chamber ensemble / by Margery Smith
by Margery Smith (2006)
Inferno was inspired by text from Dante's Inferno and paintings from the Inferno series by my brother and artist Pete Smith. Pete sent me the images as he worked on them at each stage, my initial ideas for the work came from my improvisations on clarinet that were worked into a fully notated score for the Sydney Omega Ensemble. The visceral text from Dante's Inferno was inspiring to work with.
