New 2016 repress, originally released by Arbiter in 2000. Arbiter present The Legendary Busoni Recordings, a reprint of Paul Jacobs's Nonesuch recordings. The Legendary Busoni Recordings features interpretations of Busoni's Six Short Sketches and Six Sonatinas (1976, 1979), Etudes by Stravinsky, Bartók and Messiaen (1976) and Busoni's transcriptions of the Organ Chorale Preludes by Bach and Brahms (1979). Arbiter were assisted by the late Teresa Sterne who guided Nonesuch and introduced Jacobs and their Explorer series of world music. Jacobs was an ex-pat based in Paris until he returned to become the New York Philharmonic's pianist. A protégée of Boulez and Carter, and an acquaintance of Messiaen and Stravinsky, he was the first major artist to perish from the AIDS plague in 1983.
