Notes & Reviews:

"...Busoni eventually came to consider this half-hour work [the Prelude and Fugue on Chopin's C minor Prelude] as a 'youthful excess' and in 1922 produced the recomposed, slimmed-down version which is more often recorded. Yet the original, the classic of the form between the Brahms Handel Variations and the Reger Bach Variations, is a splendid demonstration of his awesome compositional and pianistic powers aged 18, and Harden's account is the clear current benchmark." ***** -BBC Music
