What is pictured to the left is a map of a piece of music. The three buildings and two fantastic landscapes represent the 5 movements of Ferruccio Busoni's monumental Piano Concerto in C. While most concerti were composed to show off the capabilities of the soloist, his work takes on life itself from before we are born to the last breath in our bodies. This makes the concerto more like one of Gustav Mahler's transcendental symphonies than an evening's entertainment. So, it is not surprising that Busoni and Mahler were friends.

Tune into the cosmos this Sunday afternoon at 5 when we explore life through the music of Ferruccio Busoni - on the Piano.
