Notes & Reviews:

The essence of Ferruccio Busoni’s music lies in its synthesis of his Italian and German ancestry, emotion and intellect, imagination and rigour. This seventh volume in Naxos’s highly-praised series brings together several virtuosic operatic transcriptions, paraphrases and fantasies, as well as demanding studies and two piano sonatinas. "Wolf Harden is a stupendous pianist who can deliver what Busoni demands and then some" (American Record Guide on Vol. 2, NXS 8555699).

"Harden clearly possess the type of virtuoso technique perfectly suited to handling the most difficult challenges in this repertoire, from fast octaves to rapid passageworks...[in the Wagner transcription] Harden displays an orchestral command of texture...alongside a full-bodied tone which is powerful without sounding percussive...there is some solid and sensitive playing on this disc." -International Record Review
