About

Both the term 'symphonic poem' and the form itself were invented by Franz Liszt, who in works such as Les Préludes (1848), after Alphonse de Lamartine’s Méditations poétiques, used thematic concepts to depict programmatic scenes and emotions in his orchestral works. This is also true of Byron's Tasso, lamento e trionfo the subject matter of which was earthly disappointments and divine triumph; something which was later to feature in Victor Hugo's Mazeppa, where even Mazeppa's fall from his horse is described in orchestral terms.
