The Faust overture, remnant of a Faust Symphony project, begins to glimmer with possibility. But the masterful power of the Rienzi overture is apparent from the extraordinary first note, that solitary trumpet A."

John Warrack
Gramophone, June 2004

"Faust gets a strong performance from Alexander Rahbari and the Malaga orchestra."
