Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There are at least two recordings that offer the non-Goethe instrumental epilogue to Liszt's Faust Symphony: Noseda's (Chandos) and Ivan Fischer (Philips - both endings supplied). I have come back to Sir Simon's recording with the Berliners, his first with them, after allowing myself to be lured away for several years by others who received richer encomia in the press. The same thing happened with Harold In Italy. Now I have it again and I wouldn't choose another. Sound quality and performance are first rate, and Rattle's recording boasts a superb tenor in Peter Seiffert, better I think than many others. There's no denying Faust is a long haul but rushing doesn't help; fortunately this version is both live and lively.

I got my copy from the marketplace at super bargain price.

A trial run for Rattle and the Berliners--pretty impressive 5 Nov. 2005
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you don't believe in Liszt's Faust Symphony as serious music, you have to at least give it blood and guts. Otherwise the piece turns into a travesty and a bore. In this 1994 live appearnace in Berlin, a decade before he was appointed music director, Simon Rattle approaches the vulgarity a bit too daintily, much as Riccardo Chailly does.

There's not much to choose between them. Chailly gets better sound from Decca, and the Concergebouw sounds wonderful. EMI gives Rattle quite good sound, though, and he seems a bit more committed than Chailly, more mysterious in parts of the first movement ("Faust") perhaps a bit less romantic in the second ("Gretchen"), and more sprightly in the third ("Mephistopheles").

If you want a reading of fineese, this is a good choice, but it doesn't shake the world. For that, one must go to Bernstein or Horenstein.
