The accomplished Italian pianist signs this 3¼x5¼ photograph in blue ink
Printed photograph signed: "Maria Tipo" in blue ink. Date appears to be written by unknown hand at bottom margin: "1.2.51". 3¼x5¼. Maria Tipo (b. 1931) is an Italian pianist. She was taught originally by her mother, Ersilia Cavallo, who was a pupil of Ferruccio Busoni, then went on to learn under Alfredo Casella and Guido Agosti. At age seventeen, she won the Geneva international piano competition. Her first appearance in North America in the late 1950s, where she played over 300 concerts, caused her to be nicknamed the "Neapolitan Horowitz". Since then, she has performed widely and made a considerable number of recordings. Her first recording, an LP of 12 Scarlatti sonatas, which she recorded in a mere 4 hours in 1955, was hailed by Newsweek magazine as "the most spectacular record of the year". Tipo also has given master classes at the Gubbio Festival and the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole, and has served as a professor at the Conservatories of Geneva, Bolzano and Florence. Lightly toned. Corners rounded. Upper left corner slightly notched. Ink lifted in some areas. Printed words on bottom right are blurred slightly. Otherwise, fine condition.
