Goethe's tale of a despairing scholar's pact with the Devil provides the background for Liszt's Faust Symphony as well as a series of four waltzes. The Roma and Sinti Philharmonic presented the first part of that series at the Beethovenfest. The Mephisto Waltz No. 1 takes the listener straight to the heart of Goethe's legend.
