Description: A follow-up to the four-CD box of Busoni transcriptions we offered by this pianist back in June of 2009 (06K070), this one offers a couple of first recordings of short pieces, a much more difficult to play two-hand version of the chorale Wie wohl ist mir and - just for the fun of it since it has nothing to do with Bach, a salon polka by Busoni's mother with his first name as title (!). 2 CDs for the price of 1. Holger Groschopp (piano).
