This release presents the complete music for clarinet and piano by Ferruccio Busoni. The works span Busoni’s whole creative life, from the classical forms of his youth to the highly chromatic and expressionist language of his mature age.

Ferruccio Busoni went into history as one of the greatest pianists who ever lived, and as the composer of an extraordinary and eclectic oeuvre, consisting of piano works, chamber music, a monumental piano concerto and operas. His father Ferdinando Busoni was a famous clarinettist, so no wonder this instrument had a special attraction for Ferruccio.

As a bonus, two works by his father Ferdinando are included in the programme, a Melodia and a Ręverie, exquisite genre pieces of the late 19th century.

Italian clarinettist Davide Bandieri is a versatile musician and scholar. He plays solo clarinet in the Lausanne Chamber Orchestra, is an avid chamber music player and specialises in contemporary music. He wrote the extensive liner notes for this set himself.
