Orchestra: Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra. Conductor: Kurt Masur. Composer: Franz Liszt. Audio CD (September 10, 1996). This double CD from EMI gives us good value - fine performances by Kurt Masur and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra of the Dante Symphony by Franz Liszt together with five of his symphonic poems, numbers 1, 7, 11, 12 and 13. Also featured in the symphony are Volker Arndt (treble), Matthias Eisenberg (organ) and the Choir of St. Thomas' Church in Leibzig, where . Bach was cantor for so many years in the 18th century. The symphony is a companion piece to the Faust Symphony completed two years earlier, so the tonal quality of the two works is similar.

A Faust Symphony in three character pictures (German: Eine Faust-Symphonie in drei Charakterbildern), . 08, or simply the "Faust Symphony", was written by Hungarian composer Franz Liszt and was inspired by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's drama, Faust. The symphony was premiered in Weimar on September 5, 1857, for the inauguration of the Goethe–Schiller Monument there.

Kurt Masur, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra. EMI Double Forte CZS5685952. Studio Plus CDM7648502. But they do not constitute a gigantic symphony in 13+ movements. You will enjoy them more if you select them to hear as a response to your moods rather than trying to let the music determine your mood.

Masur may not be the most galvanising of conductors but he is a thoroughly musical one, and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra inhabit the sound world instinctively. The 13 symphonic poems occupy three of the discs, the Dante and Faust Symphonies dominate two more, while the last pair contains the works with piano, some of which, like the Symphonic Fantasy on Themes from Berlioz's L'Elio, are real collectors' items. Michel Béroff's performances are just a bit lacking in pungency, though perfectly serviceable in this context.

Masur and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra are certainly at home in this symphony, and the interpretation and the execution are well-matched. For historical value, this recording is significant for marking the opening of the new Gewandhaus hall, which Masur was instrumental in planning since he began his tenure in 1970.
