Purgatorio (from The Divine Comedy)

Concert Band - Grade 4
Composed by Robert W. Smith. Concert Band. Belwin Symphonic Band. Conductor Score. 44 pages. Published by Belwin Music (AP.BD9751C).

Item Number: AP.BD9751C

This appearance of Purgatorio marks the completion of Robert W. Smith's first symphony for band, The Divine Comedy. Following the hugely successful introduction of the other three movements, Purgatorio leads us through a contemplation of Purgatory. Seldom has the launching of a work for concert band more quickly captured the attention of the band director community. Multiple all-state, honor band, conference and convention performances have already taken place and are firmly scheduled into the future. This is a truly monumental work that lifts the wind band genre to new levels. (duration 7:10).

    I remember when I was in High School and our band played this piece. We were scheduled to leave for competion and had a concert the night before. Our director saved Purgatorio for last, and once it was complete, there were a few seconds of silence and then the audience...

    went crazy. It blew them away, which, I might add, it had the same effect on the judges at Fiestaval.
