EXPLORE THE GREATEST MASTERPIECES EVER WRITTEN FOR PIANO

 

NEW EPISODES EVERY OTHER SUNDAY AT 2:00 PM CT ON FACEBOOK AND YOUTUBE

Cliburn Masterpiece is a new series that examines the who, what, when, where, and how of the greatest piano works. Cliburn laureates and other esteemed specialists, in and outside the field of music, join host Buddy Bray to lead us through the story of each piece—the composer, the background, the narrative, the characters, the technical difficulties, and more. Each episode ends with a standout, full performance of the piece from a past Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.
