The poetry instils sound and meaning in these works. The evocation of the words of the poet and dramatist Henrik Ibsen appears in the compositions of “Peer Gynt” by Grieg, “Clair de Lune de Verlaine” by Debussy and even in the program music from Liszt with his Symphonic Poem “Ce qu’on entend sur la Montagne”, inspired by a Victor Hugo poem taken from “Autumn Leaves”.
