Few legendary figures have inspired so many artists as Faust. In particular, Goethe's work has proved a lasting source of inspiration: it is not simply a cornerstone of literature, but prompts all generations of musicians and composers to elaborate their personal reflections. Elemér Balázs Jr. originally conceived the music as a contemporary piano quintet, in which jazz and improvisation play a major role alongside classical elements. The composer has invited his distinguished musician friends to the concert, who are performing together for the first time. The title of their concert refers not to specific scenes from the drama, but to musical scenes that, like in a Wagnerian opera, are linked by leitmotifs that re-emerge and interlock from time to time.
