5.0 out of 5 stars As good as you're going to get October 30, 2009
The other reviewer is way off base, in my opinion. I've known these recordings for 40 years and this is the best reproduction of Busoni's pianism anyone has a right to expect. Still plenty of hiss, but a real piano tone is evident, the pedaling is noticeable, and the shadings there as well. Keep the volume on high and adjust your hearing to the background sizzle and as a listener you'll be fine.
Also Egon Petri plays the the tarantella movement, (the fourth) of the Busoni piano concerto with Hans Rosbaud like a bat out of hell. Phenomenal player and great conductor. They just don't make them like that anymore; sorry. This recording is indespensable to anyone interested in the history of pianism and recorded sound. Highest recommendation. -- Geoffrey Dorfman

1.0 out of 5 stars busoni & his legacy June 15, 2008
By bklver
While the music is great, the performer was great, I was very disappointed in the poorest of poor sound quality. Although these were early 20th century recordings, I expected (even if unrealisticly), modern techies to do at the very least, a passable job. As this was not the case, I should have been forewarned. As this was not the case, I felt cheated.
