EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Perpetuum mobile (1922), published as part of the Klavierübung, is a shortened version (from 172 to 126 bars) of the second section of Romanza e Scherzoso for piano and orchestra, composed in the previous year (and as yet unrecorded). This little-known piece explores various types of swift semiquaver figurations (simple runs, thirds, octaves). Like so many of Busoni’s mature works, it is used in Doktor Faust.
