Grego Applegate Edwards
Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review, October 2011

Goethe’s Faust…has very well conceived sound effects, music, voice alteration and excellent dramatic recitation by the actor-reciters. Listen straight through and you get a vivid experience of the Faust drama in ways you would not get in any other form. The English translation is melifluous and not stilted, and the recitation is terrific.

Of course this is a long work even in its abridged form. The ideal way to experience it first hand is in this audiobook. It makes what could easily be a bit of an ordeal an exciting and sonorously delightful experience, if you are a person of some patience.

Highly recommended.

John R. Williams’s sparkling English translation is delightful, full of wit and delicious rhymes… The performances are marvelous, and the sound effects clever and often gorgeous… What a great theatrical experience.
