ALICIA DE LARROCHA - PIANIST

Autographed 7” x 10” handbill for her Great Performers at Lincoln Center recital at Avery Fisher Hall, October 29, 1978.

Larrocha (1923-2009) was certainly the busiest female Spanish concert pianist in history.  One view of her chronology available on her website will show one that she did not rest.  That said, Larrocha is considered as one of the finest pianists of all pianists of the 20th Century and her manager, Ronald Wilford at CAMI kept her very busy.  On this date, she performed a varied and ambitious concert:  2 Sonatas by Padre Antonio Soler, "Carnaval”, op. 9 by Robert Schumann, “Valses nobles et Sentimentales” by Maurice Ravel and Two Mazurkas B flat major op. 17 #1& B minor op. 33 #4, Ballade no.3 in A flat major op. 47,  Andante Spianato et Grande Polonaise op. 22 by Frederic Chopin. For encores she played “The Maiden and the Nightingale”, #4 from “Goyescas” op 11. by Enrique Granados.

 

The handbill was folded in a small envelope when it was sent to the pianist and hence the folds seen in the scan, else fine.
