Obviously the best known one is Egon Petri - what a phenomenal pianist. He inherited the combination of intellectual pianism with a volcanic tone, from Busoni.

Egon Petri's best recordings are those recordings of Bach, Liszt (or in some cases Liszt-Busoni), and Alkan. Here's some examples:

(Selected Liszt recordings)
(Liszt-Busoni Legend No. 2) One of my favorite Petri recordings. That's high praise too, because Petri is currently my favorite pianist.
(Bach-Petri Sheep may safely graze)
(Alkan Symphony for Solo Piano)

Here are two others!

Michael von Zadora - a nervous player, one who reportedly played the Liszt sonata badly in public, but in the recording studio, his tone is gorgeous...

(Busoni "Super Carmen")
(Henselt Piano Concerto, Larghetto) Busoni may have played the outer parts similarly himself. Busoni reportedly played the Henselt for his debut in America back in 1899.
(MacDowell Hexentanz/Witches Dance) One of my favorite pieces, although I do think Leopold Godowsky plays it better.


And here's Edward Weiss, a pianist who made a fantastic recording of Busoni's "Indian Diary".

(Busoni "Indian Diary")
(Liszt-Busoni Legend No. 2)

Finally, here's some recordings of Busoni:

(Liszt-Busoni Legend No. 2)
(Liszt-Busoni Polonaise No. 2) Basically, Busoni's contribution here is that he replaced the final bars of the polonaise with his own [long] cadenza.

Enjoy!

Actually, Busoni's best known pupil was Kurt Weill.

Did not know that. So was Heinrich Kosnick, sadly untranslated into English. Anyone want to have a go?

Petri taught at Mills College. I do not know whether he was also brought in by Schmitz, but the fact that Milhaud was there probably had something to do with it.

Sadly, Mills is dying.

One might argue that Busoni's best known pupil is Jean Sibelius.

My, my - I was a student of Egon Petri in the good old days; further, he was a wonderful friend and a continued inspiration...

Sibelius studied with Busoni? Well, I guess I learn new things everyday.

That must have been wonderful. Egon Petri was a phenomenal pianist - I certainly wish we could've heard more of his Alkan.
