I see in a old paper of mine that the score is available at Conservatorio of Trieste and the Central Library of Florence. a copy should be also in Berlin (cat. 210402)

Hi all,


I have a title of a piano work (or maybe part of a Suite) by Busoni but it's in portuguese, and I really cant' find the original title to, afterwards, trying to find the Sheet music for it.
The title in portuguese is "Recolhimento" and Google translates it to "Rückzug" (in german) and "Retreat" (in english).

Any clues?

Many thanks

IMO the original title is Il ritorno (op.08, Bv 81/4).
In Bach we trust.

Hmmm...I'm sorry, but I disagree. "Il Ritorno" means "the return" or "the comeback" it doesn't seem to me that it's the same meaning. Unless the portuguese guy who translated it was...well...you know!

Found it!

It was just in front of my nose...


It's the first of the 7 Elegien, BV249: "Nach der Wendung - Recueillement"
The sub-title doesn't appear at the index, only at the actual piece, so I missed it.
