Oh lor, now to be strong and remind myself that I rarely listen to symphonic poems, even by my favourites, but I fear I shall succumb, especially as a paperback is available (I'd be able to resist the 70 pound hardback more easily).

I think the only options (at the moment) are either hardback or eBook (PDF).

A few of my favourite works in the genre are Macbeth (1859) by Henry Hugo Pierson (1815-1873), The Passing of Beatrice (1892) and Villon (1909) by William Wallace (1860-1940) and The Raven (1900) and Ulalume (1903) by Joseph Holbrooke (1878-1958)...
