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