Busoni and the Piano: The Works, the Writings, and the Recordings (Contributions to the Study of Music and Dance)

Westport, Connecticut: Greenwood Press, 1986. Hardcover. "Musicologists, pianists, composers and music-lovers in general will welcome the re-issue and second edition of Larry Sitsky's Busoni and the Piano, which has been out of print for a number of years. The second edition, which brings various aspects of the book up-to-date, will thus once again be available. Since the book was written in the late 1970s, Busoni has re-emerged as an important figure in early 20th-century music, and moreover, one who seems to be exerting an ever-widening influence on current thought and pianism.

Larry Sitsky has spent a lifetime performing, teaching, editing and studying Busoni's music. He has recently completed an ending to Busoni's great opera Dr. Faust, which will be heralded in the great opera houses of Europe; as well, he is currently working on another book on Busoni's instrumental, vocal and operatic music, and must be considered a world authority on this fascinating figure." Very Good. Item #8134
