Faust in Full Score

by

Faust in Full Score Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Charles Gounod's interpretation is the best-known and most frequently performed of any stage or orchestral treatment of the Faust legend. Long a staple of the operatic repertoire, Faust was a major success upon its first fully realized performance at Milan's La Scala in 1862. The opera's lyricism, tremendous variety of mood and orchestral color, and subtle delineation of character continue to delight generations of concertgoers.

Now opera lovers can study and enjoy the complete masterpiece in this attractive and inexpensive volume, which has been reprinted from an authoritative edition. Despite the frequency of its performances, Gounod's work is hard to find in print, so this rare edition of the full score constitutes a treasure for conductors, performers, and music majors alike.

Synopsis:

The most famous of the musical treatments of Goethe's Faust brought lasting fame to its composer. This rare edition of the full score is a treasure for opera singers and enthusiasts.

Synopsis:

Featuring Mephistopheles, the repertoire's most diabolical villain, this opera brought lasting fame to its composer. Gounod's work is the best known and most frequently performed of the musical treatments of Goethe's Faust; nevertheless, his interpretation is hard to find in print, making this authoritative edition of the full score a rare treasure.

Synopsis:

The best-known and most performed treatment. A masterpiece of lyricism, variety of mood and orchestral color, subtle delineation of character.
