BUSONI, F.: Piano Music, Vol. 5 (Harden) - 6 Studies / 6 Pieces / 10 Variations on Chopin's C Minor Prelude

Wolf Harden’s Busoni Piano Edition has been warmly applauded for its ‘spacious aural frame’ (Vol. 1—8.555034), ‘stunningly authoritative’ playing (Vol. 2—8.555699), ‘lightness of touch and excellent phrasing’ (Vol. 3—8.570249) and ‘prestidigitatory prowess’ (Vol. 4—8.570543). For this fifth volume, Busoni’s magisterial transcription of Bach’s ‘St. Anne’ Prelude and Fugue and his inspired variations on Chopin’s famous ‘Choral’ Prelude flank two equally powerful, subtle and wide-ranging sets of shorter yet equally virtuosic works, the splendid Études and the harmonically adventurous Six Pieces.
