Prologo, BV279
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
One of Busoni’s shortest and simplest works (besides pieces written in childhood) is a Prologo from a projected set of Notturni (‘Nocturnes’) begun in 1918 (there also exists an incomplete second piece entitled Il Sagramento). The completed snippet consists of twenty-three bars in A minor whose texture is very sparse, sometimes reduced to two parts in unison. It makes a brief appearance in Doktor Faust.
