The three edifices are the 1st, 3rd and 5th movements, between which come the two , living ' ones; scherzo and tarantella; the first as the nature-play of a magic flower and a magic bird - the second represented by Vesuvius and cypresses. - Over the entrance the sun rises; a seal is fastened to the door of the end building; the winged being at the close is the nature-mysticism of Oehlenschlaeger's chorus. (Busoni to his wife, 21-22 July 1902) The World premiere took place on 10 November with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and the chorus of the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedachtniskirche conducted by Karl Muck.

    this seldom recorded and performed piano concerto is with out doubt the longest and most difficult piano concerto there is.Great piece, worthwhile to learn and invaluable when done, this edition will help, although a little pricy......
