Additional features include Busoni's original system of keyboard tation, demonstrated vis-a-vis the Chromatic Fantasy.An important composer in his own right, Busoni ranks among history's most celebrated pianists. His controversial 25-volume edition of transcriptions of Bach's keyboard music includes side-by-side discussions of Bach's music with arrangements by Busoni and his pupil, Egon Petri. Adapted for the modern resources of the grand pia, the transcriptions include plentiful doublings of voices for higher and lower ranges of the keyboard that did t exist on Bach's clavier, in addition to analytical re-shapings of the music itself. This volume marks a significant collection of rarities that merit greater attention among performers and listeners.
