A performance of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1, as played by a young American in Moscow in 1958, has never been forgotten in the former Soviet Union.

The pianist, Van Cliburn, who died at the age of 78 on February 27 in Texas, was competing at the time in the first-ever International Tchaikovsky Competition.

A performance of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1, as played by a young American in Moscow in 1958, has never been forgotten in the former Soviet Union.

The pianist, Van Cliburn, who died at the age of 78 on February 27 in Texas, was competing at the time in the first-ever International Tchaikovsky Competition.

Just 23 years old, he was a long-shot entry. But right from the start it became clear that despite the great divide between Soviet citizens and Americans, something special was happening.

By the time the competition was drawing to a close, Cliburn was the audience favorite, not just in Moscow but across the Soviet Union, as the event was broadcast on state radio. When the judges announced Cliburn had won, music lovers celebrated openly, despite the official chill in Soviet-U.S. relations.

The winner of the piano competition was Daniil Trifonov, a Russian.

Whether his Tchaikovsky First Piano Concerto is worthy to stand next to Van Cliburn's or Pletnev's, I'm not sure, but going on tour with Gergiev is the best place for him to find out whether he has got what it takes to walk in their footsteps.

Only time will tell if the Tchaikovsky really was saved in 2011, if the juries really did pick the right winners, in the careers the musicians succeed – or fail – to... See More

Leif Ove Andsnes has long been recognised as one of the leading exponents of the music of Edvard Grieg. The Piano Concerto was the work which launched Andsnes’s international career when he made his debut at the Edinburgh Festival in 1989 with the Bergen Philharmonic, followed one year later by his US debut with the Cleveland Orchestra.

In 1990 he was awarded the Grieg Prize in his native Norway and in 2004 he recorded the concerto with the Berlin Philharmonic and Mariss Jansons... See More
