Musicologists, pianists, composers and music-lovers in general will welcome the re-issue and second edition of Larry Sitsky’s Busoni and the Piano, which has been out of print for a number of years. The second edition, which brings various aspects of the book up-to-date, will thus once again be available. Since the book was written in the late 1970s, Busoni has re-emerged as an important figure in early 20th-century music, and moreover, one who seems to be exerting an ever-widening influence on current thought and pianism.

Larry Sitsky has spent a lifetime performing, teaching, editing and studying Busoni’s music. He has recently completed an ending to Busoni’s great opera Dr.Faust, which will be heralded in the great opera houses of Europe; as well, he is currently working on another book on Busoni’s instrumental, vocal and operatic music, and must be considered a world authority on this fascinating figure.
