iTunes – high CPU usage on Windows

My iTunes (currently 12.7.3.46) consumes ~25-30% CPU whenever I listen to any music.

The only trick I found to resolve this is to switch it to the “Miniplayer mode”, e.g. using Ctrl+Shift+M keyboard shortcut (use the same shortcut to switch back).

It has to be a weird glitch in iTunes, but the CPU usage almost immediately drops to 1-2% CPU.
