Ferruccio Busoni: l’Énigme

Steven Vanhauwaert

I am very excited to share with you the release of this my latest solo album with music by Ferruccio Busoni!  The enigmatic Italian composer Ferruccio Busoni slipped somewhat between the cracks of music history. Although well-known for his brilliant piano transcriptions of master- pieces by other composers, his original works have eluded popularity in performance. The publication of his controversial essay, Sketch of a new aesthetic of music (1907), marks a turning point in his musical style. The Enigma highlights some of these later works, including the heroic Fantasia Contrappuntistica, two of the Elegies, the Fantasia Nach J.S. Bach, and the Indian Diary.
