In 2013 Firebird Trio's demonic side simmers through works inspired by Goethe's Faust. An arrangement of three trio sonatas by Corelli is followed by the ever-fascinating Tony Gould's take on 'Girl of my Dreams', the theme of which was used as a leitmotif in director Ken Parker's depiction of the Faust legend, Angel Heart. Then a paraphrase by Martin on Busoni's chilling opera Doctor Faustus, finishing with Schubert's beautiful Trio in E flat.
