If the Imam is reciting Surah al-Fatiha out-loud, then there is a difference of opinion between scholars:
From the Quran:
As for repeating after him while reciting other surahs. then you don't have to
In congregational salat, when Imam recites the Surah al-Hamd and other surah in the first and second Rak'at of the Fajr,Maghrib and Isha prayers, you should listen and if you do not hear the voice of the Imam, it is Mustahab that you should recite Surah al-Hamd and Surah silently.
