Misc. Comments

some earlier publication in part, I think- published in full piano-reduction in 1877.
(1876 dates from RISM.)
Music was written for a production of the two parts of Goethe's Faust by Otto Devrient (1838–1894).

Instrumentation and further information about parts 1 and 2 can be found at RISM- D-WRha DNT 496a(part I); D-WRha DNT 496b (Part II).

Once (1886 October) conducted by Gustav Mahler (who never conducted Liszt's Faust-symphony or Schumann's Faust-scenes.)
