*****

“Noble, passionate performance of Liszt's greatest work, Bernstein conducting with precision and fervour, and the Boston Symphony Orchestra ideal. Not much is added by seeing Bernstein emoting at every point.”

Opera News

“Franz Liszt's Faust Symphony is one of the most significant yet (in our time) least appreciated orchestral works of the nineteenth century. […] the quasi-autobiographical Faust Symphony is Liszt's largest and greatest symphonic utterance, and a tour de force of nineteenth-century harmonic practice”

Penguin Guide

2011 edition

“thrillingly captured on DVD - and one of [Bernstein's] very finest recordings...Bernstein seems to possess the ideal temperament for holding together grippingly the melodrama of the long first movement...and the playing of the Boston orchestra is superb throughout, especially in the strings.”
