In 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
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?
