Ferruccio Dante Michelangelo Benvenuto Busoni (1 April 1866 – 27 July 1924) was an Italian composer, pianist, conductor, editor, writer, and piano teacher.
Doktor Faust is an opera by Ferruccio Busoni with a German libretto by the composer himself, based on the myth of Faust. Busoni worked on the opera, which he intended as his masterpiece, between 1916 and 1924, but it was still incomplete at the time of his death. His pupil Philipp Jarnach finished it. More recently, in 1982, Antony Beaumont completed the opera using sketches by Busoni which were previously thought to have been lost. Nancy Chamness has published an analysis of the libretto to Doktor Faust and a comparison with Goethe's version.
Thomas Hampson, Gregory Kunde, Sandra Trattnigg, Reinaldo Macias, and Guenther Groisseboeck star in this 2006 Zurich Opera production of the Busoni opera conducted by Philippe Jordan and directed by Klaus Michael Grueber. Extras include talk with Hamson i
