Ferruccio Busoni: l’Enigme

—For press/review only—

The enigmatic Italian composer Ferruccio Busoni slipped somewhat between the cracks of music history. Although well-known for his brilliant piano transcriptions of masterpieces by other composers, his original works have eluded popularity in performance. The publication of his controversial essay, Sketch of a new aesthetic of music marks a turning point in his musical style. l’Énigme highlights some of these later works, including the heroic Fantasia Contrappuntistica.
