Miguel Ituarte, piano and José María Pou, narration

The Musical Universe of Thomas Mann

Doktor Faustus

12/3/2014

The pianist Miguel Ituarte sets the novel Doctor Faustus, narrated by José María Pou, to music. The discovery of music by Adrian Leverkühn is identified with Bach's work; his view on absolute music with Beethoven's Sonata Op. 111; the meeting with the devil is reflected on Liszt's Faustus Waltz, while the creation of the twelve-tone system is paralleled with Schönberg, and the recreation of hell in Liszt's Aprés une lecture de Dante.
