Notes & Reviews:

Performance occupied much of Busoni's attention until the turn of the twentieth century, when composition began to assume a new importance in his career. Busoni regarded his 'Elegien' as the point where he discovered his true identity as a composer. Even at his most radical, however, Busoni never rejected what had gone before; the 'Elegien' alternate between new works and transcriptions of older pieces. Drawing on Bach organ pieces, 'Fantasia after J.S. Bach' may sound backwardlooking in context, but its concept points determinedly towards the future.
