A Selection of Tone Poems 118:55Download
Tone poems are orchestral works that evoke a narrative, painting or landscape. This form of music encourages the listener to release their imagination, exploring pictorial and dramatic possibilities through music. Vltava by Smetana makes use of a grandiose melody that ebbs and flows to illustrate flow of the river. A Song of Summer is the title of a tone poem by English composer Frederick Delius - an escapist musical depiction of the season with some delicious harmonies.
