PEDRO ITURRALDE  

(b 1929 )

Iturralde is one of the most highly respected Spanish composer-performers of the last half-century, receiving the Spanish Premio Principe Viana de la Cultura (a lifetime achievement award) in 2007, and the gold medal of the Mérito de las Bellas Artes in 2009. As an international touring musician, he has been able to enrich his own compositional approach through the various styles and idioms he has encountered during his travels—from Spain and the Middle East to Germany and the United States of America. In particular, Iturralde was a great innovator in his fusion of jazz and flamenco styles, and many of his pieces also include folk and classical references. In his eclectic approach to musical construction, his compositional attitude is in some ways comparable to that of Heitor Villa-Lobos or Astor Piazzolla.
