Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Marc-André Hamelin is indisputably the king of Busoni pianists. He triumphantly masters the extraordinary technical difficulties and contrapuntal complexities this composer presents. This generously filled triple album offers most of Busoni's mature works and the widest selection of pieces from the Klavierübung so far recorded, many of them for the first time.

BBC Music Magazine
Busoni makes ridiculous demands on pianists, but in Marc-AndrT Hamelin's hands, it all sounds perfectly reasonable.
