Ferruccio Busoni was one of the greatest pianists of his day, and justly renowned for his magnificent piano transcriptions. This album highlights his masterpieces taken from the organ, violin and opera repertoire.

 

"...big and bold music meeting big and bold performance. [In the Chamber-Fantasy on Bizet's Carmen] Belsky leapt from one glorious melody to the next with ease, as the dancing, flirting music swirled about the room... A well thought out program performed with flair by a woman who has some claim to call herself Ms. Bach-Busoni."
