Jose Iturbi (piano)

About

Spanish pianist José Iturbi (1896-1980) was a pupil of Landowska and Victor Staub at the Paris Conservatoire and after graduation in 1913 he began a successful career in Europe; however after a sensational US debut in 1929 he worked more and more in the USA where he relocated. While continuing as a successful pianist he started a parallel career as a conductor and directed many American orchestras over the next 40 years. Perhaps his greatest claim to popular fame was his appearances in several Hollywood films, which has however tarnished his posthumous reputation, leading him to be dismissed as a ‘cross-over’ artist; however this is to do him a disservice as his music making retained the highest standards of craftsmanship. He made comparatively few solo recordings considering his wide repertoire but he excelled at the Spanish and French repertoire, both of which are well represented in these recordings.

Recorded 1933-1952

Reviews

It is easy to understand why [Iturbi’s] Mozart playing was so admired by pianists as dissimilar as William Kapell, Thelonious Monk and Julius Katchen. … In Debussy, we glimpse another realm of Iturbi’s idiosyncratic expertise. The character of each piece is carefully wrought, though all are informed by his innately Spanish rhythmicality. … Naturally enough, Iturbi’s interpretations of Spanish music have a special authority and élan. … Transfers are characteristically APR, which is to say, among the best. A fascinating, often surprising set that rewards repeated listening.  Patrick Rucker
