Famed pianist Van Cliburn and the Chicago Symphony performs Prokofieff and MacDowell concertos, Walter Hendl conducting. Throughout his major career, Cliburn's recordings possessed a large-scale grandeur. He was at his best in Romantic repertoire — Liszt, Chopin, Schumann, Grieg, MacDowell and Rachmaninov. He founded the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in Fort Worth, Texas, in 1962, to which he devoted more time than to his own career as a performing artist. He passed away at home in Fort Worth in February 2013 at the age of 78. His legend remains imperishable.

Maybe Cliburn's Best Recording

Reviewer: Richard Schneider
An enlightened choice. One of the best engineered piano concerto recordings ever made, so much so that it even sounded great on cassette! It's like you're there in the best seat in the house. It's also one of Cliburn's best recordings, and an absolutely top drawer performance of the Prokofiev. The MacDowell I'm not so crazy about this piece, but Cliburn and Hendl make a great case for it, and the sound is of the same demonstration quality. Other ideal piano concerto recordings from this period include Beethoven 3 with Gary Graffman, Hendl/CSO, and the Brahms 2nd Piano Concerto with Sviatislaw Richter, Leinsdorf, and the CSO. I can hardly wait for this pre-order to be available. Don't let it take all year!
