Aside from his operatic works, Wagner wrote relatively little music--a single symphony, some overtures, and a few choral and piano works. Of these, the Siegfried Idyll is the most frequently performed. Written for the composer's wife, the Idyll draws upon several of the Ring's motifs, even though it is not part of the cycle. With the Faust Overture, the nineteenth century's preeminent German opera composer took on the most discussed and written-about work by Germany's most revered poet. The original 1844 composition depicts Faust in utter despair; in 1855, Wagner reworked the piece, providing a more hopeful ending. Paired together in a single, affordable volume, these disparate works reflect two different sides of the composer's mastery.
