Alexander Mackenzie in London - 1912

from A Musician's Narrative , page 194:

"Safe as a house," the performance was an exceptionally spirited one, the best I have yet heard of a work for which Busoni had an evident affection. On that night–in a transcribed Bach Prelude and Fugue–he revealed himself as an experimentalist in novel effects when producing an astounding whirlwind of sonority from the instrument.
