Busoni as Pianist

£40.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Written by Grigory Kogan and originally published in Russian in 1964, this edition, translated and annotated by Svetlana Belsky, was published in 2010 by the University of Rochester Press.
Ferruccio Busoni is most widely known today as the composer of such works as the Second Violin Sonata, the incidental music for Gozzi's Turandot, and the most monumental piano concerto in the repertory (some eighty minutes long, with male chorus in the finale). But Busoni was also renowned in his day as an author and pedagogue and, most especially, as a pianist. Busoni's recordings of pieces by Chopin and Liszt -- and of his own arrangements of keyboard works by Bach and Beethoven -- are much prized and studied today by connoisseurs of piano playing. It remains the first and only study to concentrate exclusively on Busoni's contributions to the world of the piano, summarising both reviews of Busoni's playing and his own writings on the subject. It also closely analyzes the surviving piano rolls and recordings, and examines Busoni's editions, arrangements, and pedagogical output. As such, it will be of interest to pianists, teachers and students of the piano, historians, and all who love piano music and the art of piano playing. The author, Grigory Kogan (1901-1979) was a leading Soviet pianist and music critic.

In very good condition, bound in black cloth with gold lettering, and clean unclipped dust jacket.
