The art of José Iturbi( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pianist, conductor, composer and film personality José Iturbi was one of the most popular contributors to televised classical music from its early days, and this compilation of appearances on the Bell Telephone Hour between 1959 and 1962 illustrates his informal and sometimes humorous presentation of a fascinating range of repertoire. It also reveals his formidable technical brilliance: Iturbi had been a child prodigy, having begun his professional career at just 7 years of age when he played in a cinema in Valencia, and in his mature years his impressive fluency and command of color was sometimes overlooked on account of his "popular" image. Those qualities were particularly appropriate for the repertoire in this compilation, which includes some highly evocative rarities from José Iturbi's homeland, Spain, and indeed elsewhere."--Container
