The Mahler Piano concerto?

Gustav Mahler didn't compose a piano concerto, but his friend, Ferruccio Busoni, who often joked about Mahler's gigantic Symphonies, created a heaven storming work of his own, the Concerto in C. Spanning 70 minutes Busoni explores the human experience from before birth to our dying wish. A musical conception even Gustav Mahler would proud of.

Hear the first half of this mind expanding musical experience this Sunday at 5 on KPAC & KTXI.
