No book-length study of Liszt's thirteen symphonic poems and their impact on contemporary composers and critics has previously been published. Keith Johns's monograph is therefore the work on this significant body of musical material and its place in history. Each symphonic poem is discussed in terms of its melodic and harmonic organization, origins in surviving sketches and manuscript drafts, and reception by critics in major German cities as well as in Paris, London, and New York. The volume is illustrated with documentary facsimiles and full-page musical examples taken from the original Breitkopf & Hartel editions.
