--> original review

Tacet had not released a new installment of its Welte Mignon Mystery series for almost three years. Now follows a double album with Ferruccio Busoni playing music by Bach, Chopin and Liszt. He had recorded the Welte Mignon rolls in 1905 and 1907, which are now brought to life as a historical document without historical sound. Busoni’s Liszt interpretations are especially remarkable, showing his amazing pianistic abilities. Especially for pianists who associate Liszt with loudness, these recordings are teaching pieces worth taking to heart.
