Goethe’s Faust exerted a powerful influence on Romantic composers, offering Robert Schumann a number of unforgettable scenes drawn mainly from the mystical second part of the epic poem which he incorporated into this immensely moving large-scale cantata. Opening with the first love scene between Gretchen and Faust and concluding with the climactic scene of Faust’s redemption, Schumann created a sweeping panorama of dramatic episodes with Mephistopheles’ trickery ultimately overcome as legions of celestial beings bear Faust’s soul to heaven.

Review By Andrew Stewart,Classic FM,April 2011

You may not know these soloists or be vaguely aware of Antoni Wit…but the quality and musical intelligence of all concerned with this studio album generally match, and often exceed, what more famous names have brought to Schumann’s Faust on record…Characterful solo performances, formidable choral singing and refined orchestral playing help make this Faust an unbeatable bargain. The deal is sealed by excellent recorded sound and an (essential) online libretto and English translation.
