Overview

In the early days of televised classical music, few artists made as lasting an impression as pianist and conductor/composer José Iturbi. In this collection of clips from Iturbi's appearances on the popular Bell Telephone Hour between the years of 1959 and 1962, the former child prodigy's wide-ranging repertoire and technical virtuosity is showcased as he perform works by such classical composers as Chopin, Rameau, Falla, Liszt, and Grieg -- as well as an original work entitled "Fantasy for Piano and Orchestra." In addition to a number of solo works, Iturbi is joined by his talented sister Amparo Iturbi for a pair of duets by Chabrier and Infante.
