Album Summary

>Berlioz, Hector : La damnation de Faust, Op. 24
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

When Hector Berlioz was sent by his physician father to study medicine in Paris, he instead entered the Conservatoire to study composition. Goethe's 'Faust,' in a French translation by Gerard de Nerval, formed the basis of the 'Damnation of Faust,' which Berlioz termed a 'Legende dramatique.' The plot centers on Faust's bargain with Mephistopheles, the seduction of Marguerite, her imprisonment for matricide and her salvation, while Faust himself is dragged down to Hell, in damnation. These events are vividly captured with all Berlioz's skill of dramatic orchestral writing.
