Busoni: Piano Concerto in C major, Op. 39 — Marc-André Hamelin

The superb New Yorker music critic Alex Ross calls Hamelin "the Canadian archmagus of the piano," high praise indeed.

He'll be playing the concerto on May 9 of this year at Carnegie Hall, with Jacques Lacombe conducting the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra.

I first heard of this piece, called by Ross "The Monster Concerto," in an eye-opening January 9, 2012 New Yorker article about Ferrucio Busoni, whom Ross called "the secret emperor of European music at the turn of the twentieth century." 


Busoni plays Liszt.
