The first of Liszt's four Mephisto Waltzes is one of the composer's masterpieces. Recently discussing the work, Ernest Newman described its programme as follows: ' Faust and Mephistopheles have arrived at a village inn at which a dance following a rustic wedding is in progress. Criticising the music of the peasant players as being too ancemic, Mephisto takes the. fiddle out of the hands of one of them and plays the company a waltz of such seductive sensuality that it demoralises them all. Faust and the bride dance madly out through the open door, not reappearing until, with the cool of the dawn and the morning song of the birds, sanity and something of repentance return to at any rate one of them.'
