JOZEF TURCZYNSKI (1884-1953)
Polish pianist



Jozef Turczynski completed his training as a pupil of Busoni in Vienna in his early 20s.  Then he studied with Anna Yesipova in Russia.  Not much more needs to be said of his formation.  Would that the same could be said for me, for I have spent my life struggling with the famous Paderewski Edition of the Complete Works of Chopin which was, in fact, largely the work of Turczynski.

This great pianist was also an important teacher whose students include some of the great Polish pianists of the mid-20th century and included Halina Czerny-Stefańska, Witold Małcużyński, Henryk Sztompka, Stanisław Szpinalski, and Ryszard Bakst.

All of the examples of the playing of Jozef Turczynski are of the music of Chopin.  They consist of only six recordings, but in those six examples is represented almost the entire range of Chopin's genius.

And this is the more recently published second mystery in the series:
