Download PDF for this date

Jose Iturbi, Spanish pianist who has just returned from a successful season in Mexico, was to give his first recital this year at Carnegie Hall Saturday evening.

For this recital Iturbi has chosen a varied program consisting of works by Mozart, Schumann, Brahms, Debussy, Albeniz and de Falla.

The concert was sponsored by the New York Chapter of Hadassah, and tickets may be obtained at their office, 125 East 85th street, as well as at Carnegie Hall and Steinway Hall box office.

There still exists in Egypt the synagogue where the sixteenth century rabbi and author, Tanuji, Ishmael Ha-Kohen used to worship.
