Overview

Conductor Leonard Bernstein leads the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus in a definitive rendition of one of Franz Liszt's least-known compositions, and director Humphrey Burton captures the entire concert on camera for this release of a performance originally staged at Boston's Symphony Hall on July 26, 1976. Having previously won a battle against Columbia executives to fund a recording of the piece with the New York Philharmonic in the 1960s, Bernstein was dejected when the resulting LP faired poorly in sales. Thankfully for fans of the work, Bernstein persisted in staging yet another rendition of Liszt's unique interpretation of the Faust legend, and many critics concur that it is this performance which stands as the definitive recording of the oft-neglected composition.
