“Volume 2 in Chandos’ series of Liszt’s orchestral works includes the Faust Symphony, his crowning masterpiece, in a performance of supreme clarity and assurance. To achieve such stylistic empathy and lucidity in an hour-long force-of-nature work (the conductor has dropped the choral ending), showing Liszt’s transformation of themes and characters at its height, is a daunting achievement… Chanods’ sound, as in Vol 1, is superb; you could hardly wish for more eloquent advocacy.” - Gramophone “Although Liszt was undeniably a showman during the early part of his life, he later concentrated on composing a series of highly influential scores, including a series of 12 symphonic poems and two symphonies named after Dante and Faust. Noseda conducts a gripping performance of the latter, rejoicing in its narcotising changes of emotional direction. ‘Von der Weige’ also responds well to Noseda’s subtle dynamic inflections, and the engineering is superb.” - Classic FM Magazine Critically acclaimed conductor Gianandrea Noseda has undertaken the task of leading the BBC Philharmonic in a cycle of the complete symphonic poems of Franz Liszt. This second volume has him interpreting the much loved Faust Symphonie, coupled with the last symphonic poem the composer wrote, Von der Wiege bis sum Grabe. The Philharmonic's extremely powerful performance, together with expert engineering from Chandos, makes this a breathtaking release for any fan of Liszt.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
