Infernal Dreams, op. 5
Infernal Dreams is an awarded piece: "Special Prize: Best composition according to traditional notation based upon tonal music", during the 1st International Antonin Dvorak Composition Competition (Prague, Czech Republic, 2010). Its initial title was "Inferno" but Romain Corbisier decided to change the title because the content of the score had not any connection with the Dante's work: that was more impressions of infernal outburst.
It is a piece which, in its early version, was composed in only 24 hours (orchestration included) during the composition contest. The new version uses a lot of the initial elements but its organization changes and its structuration is rethought.
