Not quite masterpiece, but easy to enjoy,

This review is from: Busoni: Piano Concerto (Audio CD)
The Busoni piano concerto is a rarity in concerts: it's long and it needs a male voice choir. The notes describe it as a "strange beast", but observe even if it's not a masterpiece it can easily become an old friend. It's certainly that for me. Years ago I had an LP of John Ogdon's version, and it was great to hear it again in this fine performance. From the fireworks of the first movement to the tranquility of the last is a satisfying journey through the world of late romanticism.
