After hearing of Van Cliburn's passing today, I want to share a quick playlist for those wanting a quick overview of who he was as a pianist, and also the type of music he played.
Cliburn favored the Romantics. You won't see Mozart on the list, or Bach. Liszt, however, is definitely on the list.
This is not a definitive collection, merely some of my personal favorite Van Cliburn recordings. Especially the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 that made him an international star.
Rest in peace, Van Cliburn.(2 Comments)
