Firebird Trio soars to the love episode of Goethe's Faust. In 'Gretchen: Faust and Love', Haydn's humourous Trio in E flat is followed by Benjamin Martin's arrangement of Liszt's Gretchen - the slow movement to his Faust Symphony - a work of great emotive power which greatly influenced Wagner, among others. The Faustian theme continues with Andrian Pertout's illuminating version of Girl of My Dreams and finishes with Beethoven's sublime Ghost Trio.
