Liszt: Eine Faust-Symphonie, A Faust Symphony (CD)

Boston Symphony Orchestra

$16.99

Despite his long association with the Boston Symphony, Leonard Bernstein made relatively few studio recordings with the orchestra - mostly concentrated in a diverse selection of repertoire in 1972, in anticipation of his upcoming Norton lectures at Harvard University.

The 'Faust' Symphony of Liszt - here recorded in July 1976 - was something of a preoccupation of Bernstein. He revels in the work's literary allusions, yet maintains control of the symphony's sprawling structure. Kenneth Riegel sings with supreme conviction.
