Symphonic poems: Fairy tales, legends and impressions of nature
Under the influence of Richard Wagner and Hector Berlioz, Franz Liszt founded the genre of the symphonic poem in the 1850s, which today is represented in concert life mainly by the orchestral works of Richard Strauss. Composers from Scandinavia, Russia, the Czech Republic, Italy and France were inspired by fairy tales, sagas and impressions of nature to create fascinating works. In this selection, among others, chief conductor Kirill Petrenko presents tone poems by Debussy and Strauss.
