Description
After his triumph at the USSR's First International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1958, Van Cliburn became the only classical musician to be honored with a ticker-tape parade in New York City. This fascinating documentary by Peter Rosen—originally broadcast on A&E's Biography series—offers an intimate view from the artist himself and those closest to him, including opera singers Leontyne Price and Marilyn Horne, conductor Leonard Slatkin, and many others.

"[What] stunningly fresh pianism Cliburn brought to Russia that week. The recordings he made shortly after his victory capture the twinned delicacy and strength in his playing that made it so irresistible, the virtuosity paired with a deep yet unforced songfullness. 'He was miles better than any of the others,' recalled the Russian piano titan Sviatoslav Richter, a member of the jury who was reportedly seen in tears after one of Cliburn's performances."—Boston Globe
