Faust, Faust, and More Faust

faust_rembrandt.jpgIn anticipation of WDAV”s live broadcast of Opera Carolina”s Faust (by Gounod) on Saturday, I was asked by another staff for examples of other music inspired by the Faust legend. So how about these:
Berlioz: Damnation of Faust
Spohr: Faust
Liszt: A Faust Symphony
Wagner: A Faust Overture
Schumann: “Faust” Concert Overture and oratorio

Ginastera: Overture to the Creole Faust
That”s what I can think of. What about you? Can you add to this list?

    I’m pretty sure Charles Gounod did a “Faust” opera for the Paris ‘Theatre-Lyrique’ in March, 1859

  2. Monika Brown says:

    Mefistofele, by Arrigo Boito, is another Faust opera that is still performed.
    The Berlioz Damnation of Faust, in a new Metropolitan Opera production, can be seen in HD at movie theatres Nov. 22.

    Faust, by Petr Eben. In 1980 the Czech composer reworked the incidental music he wrote for a production of Goethe’s Faust at Vienna’s Burgtheater into an extended cycle for solo organ.
