Faust der Tragödie erster Teil ; in der Gründgens-Inszenierung des Düsseldorfer Schauspielhauses by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Sound Recording )
2 editions published between 1963 and 2004 in German and held by 22 libraries worldwide
Mit "Faust"schuf Goethe das urdeutsche Drama schlechthin. Hier wird die Tragödie ganz puristisch als Ein-Mann-Theater für die Ohren in Szene gesetzt. Hans Peter Hallwachs schlüpft in alle Rollen - zweifelnd als Faust, verführerisch als Mephisto, unschuldig als Gretchen - und verleiht dem Text eine sehr persönliche Note. Eine feine Handarbeit mit der Stimme eines großartigen Interpreten. 2. Platz der Hörbuchbestenliste vom Oktober 2010
