Compositions
Ferruccio Busoni

(1866-1924)
Ferruccio Busoni was born in 1866. The son of an Italian musician father and a German pianist mother, Ferruccio Busoni represented a remarkable synthesis of two differing attitudes to music at this time while winning an outstanding reputation as a piano virtuoso. Busoni composed operas, a series of orchestral works including a Piano Concerto that also uses a male chorus in the finale and various pieces of chamber music. Of the various works Busoni composed or transcribed for the piano particularly impressive is the famous arrangement of Bach’s Chaconne for unaccompanied violin one of a number of works based on Bach. His Fantasia after Bach and the much revised Fantasia contrappuntistica demonstrate something of his musical preoccupations.
