Description: A new record for commercial CD length: 87:05! Busch's output for solo piano shows off his natural qualities as a contrapuntist and melodist, in music that is both immediately attractive and intellectually rewarding, with the 31-minute sonata from 1922 being the largest work by far and Reger the most obvious influence throuought (the Intermezzi, dating from 1909-1917, might be what would have happened if Brahms had lived a bit longer and had turned into Reger). Jakob Fichert (piano).
