Bust-length photograph, signed in full, inscribed, and dated New York, 1945
by TOUREL, Jennie 1900-1973
"Tourel's career was dominated by international appearances in recital and concert, and as an interpreter of French music she was considered virtually without rival. Her other specialities included the Italian coloratura mezzo-soprano repertory and the music of Leonard Bernstein, with whom she became closely associated. She gave the first performances of many songs by Poulenc and Hindemith (notably the revised Marienleben cycle, 1949). In 1951, in Venice, she created Baba the Turk in The Rake's Progress. She taught at the Juilliard School and at the Aspen Music School. Her reputation, supported by many recordings, rests on her enormous versatility, both musical and linguistic, her stylistic elegance, her sensitivity to textual nuance and tone colour, and a remarkable technique."
