Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

In this concert staged at Carnegie Hall to celebrate the 135th anniversary of the first Steinway and the 500,000 piano that the company has manufactured, Van Cliburn takes the stage to introduce twenty-seven virtuoso pianists including Peter Orth, Murray Perahia, Lazar Berman, and Alfred Brendel as they perform the works of Schubert, Stravinsky, Rachmaninoff, and more. As the performance reaches its climax, the twenty-one movements of Schumann's "Carnaval" are divided between nineteen pianists for the second time since the 1921 Carnagie Hall benefit concert staged for Moritz Moskowski.
