To "transfer the orchestral into the pianistic" was Busoni's incentive to arrange Schönberg's piano piece. Many extended piano techniques, on the other hand, alienate the piano sounds and disguise their origins. Reminiscences, paraphrases, quotations and echoes of Debussy or Beethoven's "speaking expression", music box melodies and recorded sound collages awaken associations with the familiar and combine with the diverse sound world of extended piano.
