Just started this, a new examination of Liszt's symphonic poems from Joanne Cormac at University of Nottingham (England.) She details Liszt's years in Weimar, his ideas on music and art, motivation and premieres, and repositions the composer as a dramatist. whose symphonic oeuvre should be placed alongside dramatic works of Mendelssohn, Berlioz and Wagner. Eminently readable and not at all didactic this is an exciting venture into an area that, unlike the worlds of Beethoven, Bach or even Bruckner, has not been particularly explored. Fun so far.
