This was produced to be the first great digital recording of Liszt's A Faust Symphony, but for all its opulent tone and polished ensemble, this 1983 recording by Riccardo Muti and the Philadelphia Orchestra fell short. Its grandiloquence transforms Goethe's hero into a braggart and a blowhard, and its simplistic grasp of form turns Mephistopheles and Faust's concluding spiritual battle into a Saturday night bar brawl and a Sunday morning church service. Most of Muti's central movement depicting Gretchen is singularly lacking in sensitivity

Franz Liszt Composer. Gösta Winbergh (ten). Riccardo Muti (bass) Conductor. Westminster College Choir. Philadelphia Orchestra. Liszt A Faust Symphony. Riccardo Muti's performance of Liszt's orchestral masterpiece is in many respects admirable in its synthesis of drama, introspection and diablerie; such qualities allied to the fevered virtuosity of the Philadelphia Orchestra would seem to assure a strong recommendation for this CD. And yet, this dashing approach, whilst undeniably exciting, fails to illuminate much of the visionary detail of the score

A Faust Symphony in three character pictures (German: Eine Faust-Symphonie in drei Charakterbildern), . 08, or simply the "Faust Symphony", was written by Hungarian composer Franz Liszt and was inspired by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's drama, Faust. The symphony was premiered in Weimar on September 5, 1857, for the inauguration of the Goethe–Schiller Monument there.
