"Am Pult des Symphonieorchesters des Bayerischen Rundfunks: der herausragende englische Dirigent Daniel Harding. Er präsentiert mit den "Faust-Szenen"ein groß angelegtes Meisterstück, das die komplexe und hochphilosophische literarische Vorlage von Goethe in einer losen Szenenfolge musikalisch nachzeichnet. Immer wieder beschäftigte sich Schumann gerade in seinem letzten Lebensjahrzehnt mit den Möglichkeiten, die im vokal-symphonischen und musikdramatischen Komponieren liegen. Die Partie des Faust gestaltet der außergewöhnliche Bariton Christian Gerhaher, ihm zur Seite stehen Christiane Karg als Gretchen sowie weitere international hoch angesehene Solisten, der Kammerchor der Augsburger Domsingknaben und der Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks" (br.de)
