Overview

It takes not only super-virtuoso technique to play Ferruccio Busoni's piano transcriptions and paraphrases, but brains, soul, and especially guts, and pianist Holger Groschopp has everything it takes. For this four-disc Capriccio set, Groschopp has recorded all of Busoni's transcriptions and paraphrases, including seven that have never been recorded before. The familiar works are here (the "Carmen Fantasy" and the "Chaconne" transcription), along with less well-known works (the "Don Giovanni Serenade" and the "Magic Flute Chorale"), and hitherto unknown works (the "Fantasy" on Goldmark's "Merlin" and Mozart's "C minor Fugue"). Groschopp has the speed, the dexterity, and the strength to bring off the most technically difficult pieces, along with the intelligence, the character, and the charisma to make the most interpretively difficult pieces compelling. Although there have been recordings of some of these works that go deeper than Groschopp's (Michelangeli's reading of the "Chaconne," for instance, remains one of the marvels of recorded history), anyone interested in Busoni's music will want to hear these recordings, especially in Capriccio's clean, but atmospheric digital sound.
