LISZT: DANTE SYMPHONY L'Orchestre de la Suisse Romande - SXDL7542

£9.99

Product description

LISZT: DANTE SYMPHONY

Written in the high romantic style, Liszt's Dante Symphony is based on Dante Alighieri's journey through Hell and Purgatory, as depicted in The Divine Comedy. It was premiered in Dresden in November 1857, with Liszt himself conducting, and was unofficially dedicated to the composer's friend and future son-in-law Richard Wagner. The symphony consists of two movements, both in a loosely structured ternary form, with little use of thematic transformation.

The opening movement is entitled 'Inferno' and depicts Dante's and Virgil's passage through the nine Circles of Hell. The structure is essentially sonata form, but is punctuated by a number of episodes representing some of the salient incidents of the Inferno. The longest and most elaborate of these – the Francesca da Rimini episode from Canto 5 – lends the movement something of the structure of a triptych.

The second movement, entitled 'Purgatorio', depicts Dante and Virgil's ascent of Mount Purgatory. It is ternary in structure - the first section is solemn and tranquil and in two parts; in the second section, which is more agitated and lamentable, a fugue is built up to a grand climax; in the final section there is a return to the mood of the opening, the principal themes of which are recapitulated.
