Ferrucio Busoni

a.k.a. Ferrucio Dante Michaelangelo Benvenuto Busoni

Author Code: TFBX

Born: Apr. 1, 1866 - Empoli, Tuscany, Italy

Died: Jul. 27, 1924 - Berlin, Germany

The son of musical parents, Busoni became a child prodigy and made his debut as a pianist at the age of seven. Musically educated at Graz and Leipzig, Busoni began to teach music in 1888 and traveled to various countries including Russia and the United States where he both taught and performed as a pianist and conductor. In 1894, he moved to Berlin and continued to teach. Over the years, he had several famous artists among his students including Percy Grainger, Kurt Weill, Stefan Wolpe and Egon Petrie. He also became a close friend of Jean Sibelius after having spent time in Helsinki. During the First World War he lived in Italy, but returned to Berlin in 1920. Most of Busoni's compositions are for the piano, although he also composed operas and orchestral works. He was considered by many to be the greatest piano virtuoso since Franz Liszt. In 1907, he published Sketch of a New Aesthetic of Music which discussed the future of music including electronic instrumentation well ahead of its time. His main works include the Piano Concerto Op. 39 (1904), his opera Turandot [not to be confused with Puccini's version] (1904) and Piano Sonatina No. 6 (1920).
