Sarabande and Cortege, Two Studies for Doktor Faust, Op. 51 (1919) - Royal Phiharmonic Orchestra / Daniell Revenaugh - Bach-Busoni - Prelude and Fugue in D, BWV 532 - Emil Gilels, Piano - Variations and Fugue on Prelude in C minor by Frederic Chopin - John Ogdon, Piano - Fantasia Contrappuntistica for Two Pianos (Chorale-Variations on "Ehre sei Gott in der Hohe" followed by a quadruple fugue on a Bach fragment) - Peter Serkin and Richard Goode, Piano
Daniell Revenaugh's highly atmospheric reading of Sarabande and Cortege, Two Studies for Doktor Faust was taken from the set of John Ogdon's 1967 world premiere recording of Busoni's Piano Concerto (and I would be surprised if it has been reissued, as the Piano Concerto has been).
The 1966 performance by Peter Serkin and Richard Goode (issued on the 100th anniversary of Busoni's birth) of the Fantasia Contrappuntistica for Two Pianos is also a "first recording."
Includes original covers and notes.
LP transfers of material issued 1967 (Angel-EMI); 1966 (Columbia); digital material recorded 1960-61 and 1968.
