The Darkness of Fury is a contemplation of the brutality of war, especially the wars of the Middle East since 1948. Following a brief and violent introduction, a terse chromatic "Fugue from Hell" ensues--demons chasing demons. A romantic transition played by the strings is a fleeting ray of hope for peace. But this is short lived as the Fugue returns bringing the piece to its brutal and violent end.
