Ferruccio Busoni: A Bio-Bibliography (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 3 weeks.


One of the greatest of the pianists after the time of Liszt, Ferruccio Busoni was a turn-of-the-century composer whose music has recently begun to be taken very seriously in academic circles and among contemporary performers. This work is the first volume to offer a comprehensive, annotated bibliography covering a wide range of published and unpublished materials, including Busoni's librettos and his perceptive essays on the future of music. It also provides a brief biography and detailed listings of Busoni's compositions, together with an extensive discography.

The list of works presents information on original works, cadenzas, transcriptions, editions, and performances. The discography lists transcriptions and arrangements in addition to recordings of original works. Piano rolls and recordings by Busoni are included. Among the subject categories in the bibliography are Busoni's writings; a guide to the contents of the editions of his writings; his correspondence; studies and commentaries on Busoni's composition, performances, and writings; and personal reminiscences by those who knew him. Up-to-date information about new editions and reprints of Busoni's works is given. An appropriate addition to library music collections, this work is a valuable resource for both musicologists and performers.
