Abstract: A problematic and still somewhat neglected group of works in the concert hall as well as in the academy), the twelve tone poems Franz Liszt wrote between 1848 and 1861 continue to prompt fundamental questions, concerning both their formal organization and the relationship between form and content in them. This paper aims to shed new light on these issues, focusing on Liszt’s symphonic poem Hamlet. Drawing upon the theory of sonata deformation, it claims that Liszt’s Hamlet can best be understood as a sophisticated interaction between program and autonomous musical form, in which the deformation of normative sonata-form characteristics guides the construction of a narrative by the listener.
