Busoni Duo K156 in E Minor for Two Flutes and Piano

Publisher-Breitkopf and Hartel


The duo for 2 flutes and piano was written during Ferruccio Busoni’s period of compositional instruction with Wilhelm Mayer in Graz, who commented below the music text: “The invention is nice, the work superb” – thus, praising the contrapuntal skills of the then fourteen-year-old.

In his youth, Ferruccio Busoni was considered especially gifted at the piano. In many instances, the piano part goes beyond its traditional role of supporting the flute duo and instead emerges as an equal musical partner.

Ferruccio Busoni

Busoni (1866-1924), an influential Italian composer and pianist, made remarkable contributions to the world of music.  Busoni displayed prodigious talent in both composition and piano performance from a young age. He actively composed throughout his life, leaving behind a diverse body of work that encompassed various genres and styles. Busoni’s compositions often showcased his virtuosic piano skills, blending elements of Romanticism with modern harmonic techniques. Additionally, he was renowned for his interpretations of classical works, breathing new life into the music of composers like Bach and Mozart.
