This musical interpretation of Goethe's great verse drama embodies Liszt's revolutionary approach. Brilliantly innovative and endlessly fascinating in the way its thematic materials are constantly transformed, the work has influenced such major 20th-century composers as Strauss and Debussy, who went on to fully explore what Liszt had begun in his far-reaching "tone poems."
