Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The sixth volume of Busoni' piano music features two major projects from the earlier part of his career. The Liszt transcription powerfully recreates the composer' grandest work for organ in terms of the piano, while the Piano Sonata in F minor is an ex

Review

As I've noted in previous reviews, the nature of the keyboard writing in Liszt's massive organ fantasy and fugue based on the chorale Ad nos, ad salutarem undam from Meyerbeer's Le Prophete lends itself well to the piano. Although Liszt himself made an effective piano duet arrangement, Busoni's two-handed piano version can stand toe-to-toe with Liszt's B minor sonata as a virtuoso showpiece. That is, if you have the right pianist. By and large, Wolf Harden is up to the task. He effortlessly navigates the outer sections' technical difficulties and stamina-testing textures, and sensitively sustains the central lyrical movement. Perhaps the latter emerges with more austere transparency in Hamish Milne's Hyperion studio recording, while the formidable fugue benefits from Giovanni Belluci's greater animation and dramatic sweep in an out-of-print recording on the small Assai label. And perhaps you could imagine more incisive and assertive interpretations of the weak "fake Brahms" F minor sonata Busoni wrote as a teenager and of the composer's late, bitonally obsessed Prélude et etude arpèges. However, this is definitely worth it for "Ad nos" and for Richard Whitehouse's extensive, highly informative booklet notes. -- Classics Today, Jed Distler, January 2010

Liszt never made things easy for himself, and Busoni didn't like leaving well enough alone. So we're not surprised that Wolf Harden, playing Busoni's powerhouse piano transcription of Liszt's organ Fantasy and Fugue, sounds like he has four hands, not two. -- The Globe and Mail, Elissa Poole, December 2009
