    Wow. what a contrast between these two artists. I enjoyed both of them, but I kind of liked Valentina Lisitsa more. She put so much contrast into it…from powerful and stoic to light and lilting…a different personality…happy, joyful..well just different from the first artist.

    My first awareness of Ferrucio Busoni was the version for piano I learned of his arrangement of J S Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, which was faithful enough to the organ composition so as to be a great substitute. Many of the performance techniques are the same between these two pieces, and the moving octaves throughout are very forceful. I don’t know which of these two videos I have a preference for; I like both.
