Notes & Reviews:

The Italian virtuoso, Ferruccio Busoni, is mainly remembered for his magnificent, yet ferociously demanding works for piano. In this first CD of a planned series, skilled pianist, Sandro Ivo Bartoli, tackles Busoni's toughest pieces, the Seven Elegies and Fantasia contrappuntistica, with gracious precision

The Telegraph
Sandro Ivo Bartoli describes [Fantasia contrappuntistica] as "a work of mystical allure and visionary genius", an assessment borne out by a performance that conquers the music's supreme technical demands and conveys its epic architecture.
