Ferruccio Busoni

April 1, 1866 - July 27, 1924
born in Empoli, Italy, composed during the Modern period
Italo-German composer Ferruccio Busoni (1866-1924) was a titanic piano virtuoso and an architect of European modernism. Best known for his transcriptions of J.S. Bach and his Piano Concerto (1904), Fantasia Contrappuntistica (1910-1921), and opera Doktor Faust (1924), Busoni revolutionized piano technique and opened up new harmonic concepts within boundaries of functional harmony. Busoni's idea of junge klassizität (renewed classicality) served as a building block for neo-classicism and his book Sketch for a New Aesthetic of Music (1907) remains influential. Busoni led a Berlin-based master class, training composers and pianists alike, including figures such as Kurt Weill, Otto Luening, Claudio Arrau, and Egon Petri. ~ Uncle Dave Lewis , Rovi

At first I was going to say you had the wrong composer but I see this is a Bach 'mashup' written by Busoni. Very nice.
I like his transcriptio n of Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor BWV 565.
wow. this is reall music
