Liszt–Tausig: Faust Symphony

by István Lajkó (piano)

Liszt was obsessed with the legend of Faust, he also composed several pieces based on literary works by Goethe and Lenau on the same subject. Among these compositions, Liszt’s main symphonic work, the Faust Symphony, which he continued elaborating over several decades, is the most outstanding. In this recording the Symphony is performed on the piano (like the Piano Sonata in B minor, which is related in its poetic programme to the Symphony) in the transcription of Carl Tausig, one of Liszt’s favourite students.
