Ferruccio Busoni (1866-1924): Concerto for Piano and Orchestra with Men’s Chorus op. 39 (Kindermann 247) Gunnar Johansen, Piano; Men’s choir of the NDR; prepared by Otto Franze; NDR Symphony Orchestra, Conducted by Hans Schmidt-Isserstedt. Recorded 15/16, January 1956, Hamburg, Musikhalle (live). Chief producer: Dr. Friedrich Schnapp. Total Time: 68:25 AAD (mono) UPC # 0-17685-11632-2.

Dissatisfied with the traditional concerto form, Busoni created a monumental work lasting 68 minutes which is symphonic in scale and intent, requiring of the pianist virtuosity and stamina of the highest order, yet also a sensitive, even intimate, collaboration with the orchestra. In this this well-proportioned performance by Egon Petri’s foremost pupil Gunnar Johansen, that above all respects Busoni’s large-scale architecture, listeners will hear both the transcendental virtuosity and the poetic sensitivity called for by the score.

 Released with the kind cooperation of the Gunnar and Lorraine Johansen Foundation.
