Editorial Reviews

François-Xavier Roth leads his period-instrument orchestra Les Siecles in an album of music by Franz Liszt featuring two of the composer's symphonic poems. Inspired by Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, Liszt's Dante Symphony depicts Dante's journey from hell to paradise. The work is especially innovative, featuring numerous orchestral and harmonic advances. It is the first work to make use of progressive tonality, anticipating its use in the symphonies of Gustav Mahler by forty years. Liszt composed Orpheus in 1853-4. It is one of four symphonic poems he composed as character sketches of men of creative genius, heroism or legend. (The other three poems are Tasso, Prometheus and Mazeppa.) Unlike many of Liszt's other symphonic poems, the music here remains largely contemplative. Worthy of note is the work's rich instrumentation, which includes two harps used to represent Orpheus' lyre.
