Ferruccio Busoni was an odd composer: so odd, in fact, that his music was seldom popular in concert halls during his lifetime and, in fact, lay largely neglected until the late 1960s when pianist John Ogden suddenly recorded his massive Piano Concerto. That concerto, like his opera Doktor Faust, was pretty much a meandering mess, but of course Academia jumped all over them and told us how ignorant we were for not recognizing their genius.

The Tanzwalzer, also light music, are very interesting for the way Busoni plays with orchestral color and rhythm. It almost comes across as a developing, organic composition than a suite, particularly in this performance. The Comedy Overture lives up to its title, with sprightly, playful music, bustling and happy form start to finish, yet has enough harmonic interest in it to keep up one’s interest. It would certainly not be a favorite on your local classical radio station! The curious thing about Busoni is that he sounds both German and Italian at the same time: German, and sometimes Russian, in his melodic contours, but then suddenly Italian in the very next phrase.

Preface to the full score
Ferruccio Busoni – pianiste extraordinaire, composer, teacher, and philosopher-sage of modern music – had very close ties with the United States, where he often made extended concert tours (most notably in 1904, 1910 and 1911) and twice considered setting up residence. On the first of these occasions he lived in Boston, where he taught at the New England Conservatory, but one year later he resigned this position and moved to New York. There, in 1893, he was approached by an eighteen-year old New York girl who sought lessons from him in piano and harmony. It was an acquaintance that would later, in unexpected ways, alter his artistic evolution.
