ROCO premieres Danielpour's "Nell' Inferno" from his symphony on Dante's Divine Comedy

Richard Danielpour’s Triptych (Symphony in Three Movements) reveals where it’s coming from with its subtitle: “After the Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri.” Danielpour’s program note hails the “inherent message of love and compassion” in Dante’s epic, then goes further. The journey from hell through purgatory to paradise serves as a metaphor for the period when “the world was consumed with, and in some cases by, the COVID-19 pandemic,” Danielpour says. “The music is a reflection on those years: the suffering, the patience, the endurance, and finally the emergence from that dark place that many of us experienced.”
