The Art of Jose Iturbi - DVD

With attention nowadays on the Jose Iturbi International Piano Competition underway in Valencia, Spain it is worth mentioning a DVD that looks at the pianist himself: The Art of Jose Iturbi . Most interesting to me is it features his own "Fantasia for Piano and Orchestra". More information about it is found here.

You might want to also check out the "little concerto" composed by Morton Gould for Iturbi. Info here.

And one last bit of Iturbi-ana: two of the pianos owned by Iturbi may be taking a trip from Hollywood to Spain. Details here.
