Adolf Busch: Complete Music for Solo Piano

Adolf Busch (1891–1952) is generally remembered as one of the great violinists and founder-leader of the peerless Busch Quartet. But he was also an important composer, writing in a tradition coloured by his friend and mentor Max Reger, and his output for solo piano – recorded here for the first time – shows off his natural qualities as contrapuntist and melodist, in music that is both immediately attractive and intellectually rewarding.
