Ferruccio Busoni by Ferruccio Busoni
Book DescriptionAlthough Ferruccio Busoni (1866 1924) wrote operas, orchestral, and chamber music, he is today especially renowned for his works for piano, particularly his very popular and frequently performed transcriptions of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Busoni early earned a worldwide reputation as an extraordinary pianist, one who combined great virtuoso technique with a profound and powerful musical intellect. These qualities are amply evident in the remarkable piano transcriptions in this edition: Prelude and Fugue in D; Prelude and Fugue in E-flat ("St. Anne"); Toccata, Adagio and Fugue in C; Toccata and Fugue in D Minor; Chaconne in D minor; and Ten Chorale-Preludes.All pianists especially those who aspire to the highest levels of technique will welcome the opportunity to study and perform these wonderful works presented complete in this convenient, modestly priced volume."
