It contains a significant amount of material unavailable to Dent and is not written under the restrictions imposed by Busoni's widow and the demands of others at the time. Drawing largely on Busoni's own letters to his parents, wife and many friends, as well as other material now available in manuscript or published form, Couling offers a picture of this complex genius, a Faustian figure torn between his allegiances to Germany and Italy and the pressure (and attractions) of life as a celebrity virtuoso pianist, composer, family man, and restless seeker after solitude and contemplation."."
