Overture, Faust
Forest Murmurs (Siegfried)
Wagner designed this Faust overture as the first movement of a Faust symphony, the idea of writing which is said to have come to him after hearing Beethoven's Ninth Symphony rehearsed in the Conservatoire. He was then a young man in Paris, heavy with disappointment and very near starvation, and to fit his mood he chose as his subject matter the Faust of Goethe. But nothing of his condition is reflected in the overture (the only part of the original scheme he completed). It is vigorous, illustrative music, and in no sense depicts the composer ' longing for kindly Death and hating life as the text on which the music is based would have us suppose.
