Product Description


technical comment

  • This disc celebrates Liszt's Dante Symphonie and marks the bicentenary of his birth.
    In his Dante Symphonie, Liszt evokes all three parts of the Divine Comedy: leading us, as Virgil, through Dante's Hell to Paradise via Purgatory. The Inferno opens with a theme hammered brass. This is the terrifying admonition engraved on the door of Hell: "Abandon hope, all ye who enter." The orchestra deploys dramatic effects to immerse the listener in the pains of hell and vortex of torment.
    Ultimately we reach the Magnificat, the ultimate "Vision", one of Paradise, with a choir of angels who sing their hymn to the Virgin.
