Commissioned and recorded by Seattle Symphony Orchestra/ Gerard Schwarz, Starbucks Label. The work came about from a Seattle Symphony project to produce a series of recordings containing new contemporary works based on an older piece of music. As the composer explains, "I thought for about 30 seconds and then said I would base my piece on the 'Infernal Dance' from Stravinsky's 'Firebird Suite'. My piece, ‘Infernal,’ is a double homage to Stravinsky and Henry Mancini."
