SYMPHONIC POEM: A musical work for orchestra inspired by an extramusical story or idea to which the title typically refers. It evolved from the concert Overture - an overture not attached to an opera or play yet suggestive of a literary or natural sequence of events. Franz List, who coined the term, wrote 13 such works. Famous symphonic poems include Claude Debussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun (1894), Richard Strauss's Don Quixote (1897), and Jean Sibelius's Finlandia (1900)." Stuart Reblin has created a unique blend of Romantic, Contemporary, and Classical music in: Sentiments; O Israel; and Remembrance.
