Later that year, he was featured in a recital in Ojai Valley (Santa Barbara), California to commemorate the centennial birth of Hungarian pianist Lili Krauss.
As an avid supporter of contemporary music, in 1998 he did the premier of Paul S. Chihara’s Sonata for Viola and Piano, together with violist Csaba Erdelyi, and in 2003 premiered the piano and strings quintet Encuentros by renowned Chilean composer Juan Orrego-Salas, performance that is revisited in Orrego’s new autobiography Encuentros, Visiones and Repasos where he praises “the young Chilean pianist…”.
Urrutia has been Radio and Television broadcasted in his native Chile more than a dozen times and has video–recorded the Liszt B–minor Sonata for the Pencopolitan Project 2010.
Urrutia is an active teacher and has given Master Classes at academic venues and festivals here in the United States and in his native Chile.
