Description
"This young man has double the sound that anyone else has," was Vladimir Horowitz's observation on first hearing Van Cliburn. At the USSR's International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1958, the Russians were besotted with the Texan's open, authentic personality: "I can only say that his playing sounded the most Russian of everyone," enthused a fellow competitor when Cliburn caused a major thaw in Cold War relations by winning First Prize at the age of 23. This set brings together all of the live and studio recordings the legendary pianist made for RCA. Beginning with his 1958 debut recording of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 (the first classical album to sell over one million copies), it features his favorite Chopin, Brahms, and Debussy pieces; selections from his 1972 Moscow performances; concertos by Prokofiev, Rachmaninov, Schumann, Grieg, Liszt, Beethoven, Barber, and Mozart; the popular album of favorite encores; his last RCA recording of Brahms pieces; and much more. This boxed set contains a hardcover book, along with the Peter Rosen film Van Cliburn – Concert Pianist.

"Cliburn's expansive tempi, beautifully modulated sonorities, and generous spirit may have seemed a throwback to another era, yet were generous enough to earn the admiration and respect of his peers."—Jed Distler
