Veloce e leggiero
The five-page piece marked Veloce e leggiero (Book 5) was written in the first days of January 1924 and is Busoni’s very last composition. It makes much use of symmetry around one note and features an angular motif, with wide intervals, that one would expect in a sardonic piece by Prokofiev.
