The concert piece was composed for the First National Composition Competition for Wind Orchestra Palatucci in 2010, obtaining the second prize (first prize not awarded). The composition is inspired by the analogy perceived between the “salvation”, understood in a laical way, of the myth of Orpheus – who with his music corrupts the god of the underworld to bring his beloved back to life – and the story of the Chief of Police of city of Fiume who allowed the salvation of a multitude of Jews destined to suffer the murderous Nazi fury. Many instruments stand out as solists and in their extreme registers.
