Inferno Suite for Orchestra, Ed. 2

Recommended Posts

Here is my suite in nine-parts about Dante's Inferno and the circles of Hell he describes. I rewrote the entire suite, as I had previously written in only six days. Much of the suite is different, and this time I included a brief introduction about every piece and the suite as a whole to give you, the listener a better idea of what is going on. Let me know what you think!

Wow! Really grand scale; impressive. 
My main gripe: I get that it's all playing with thematic elements but a lot of this sounds the same all the way through in different contexts. I know that doesn't make much sense out of context, but take Symphonie Fantastique for example. A lot of thematic elements, but the build upon them is so extravagant that the theme becomes quite vague in comparison, but the atmosphere changes make it a different experience each time it changes. I didn't get that vibe with this piece. Too similar compositional styles sometimes ironically obscures the individuality of each part, even though it's under a full suite.
Other than that, quite impressive writing, though maybe a little too fast or extensive for both the winds and strings. I'm being too picky, here. Great job!!

Thanks, Monarcheon. I'm always trying to improve my ideas every way I can, and I appreciate your help every time.
