Ferruccio Busoni, a great pianist and composer, is today almost remembered for his writings rather than for his musical works.

Particularly profound composer with an idea of ​​music all his own: a music theorist, a precursor of electronic music and inventor of the "New Classicism". Through his compositions, one can perceive the evolution of his musical genius, and one often wonders why a composer like Busoni is little performed today and little loved in general.

Busoni in life was a great interpreter and transcriber appreciated and requested all over the world; for this very reason, his fame as a performer overshadowed that as a composer. His transcriptions of Bach's works are still among the most performed and among the most important, such as the Chaconne for violin.

From a compositional point of view, he was cautious in exposing his musical theories.

Unlike other contemporary composers of his, such as Arnold Schönberg, Busoni did little to put his aesthetic ideas into practice, limiting himself instead to conceptualizing them and writing essays on music.
