Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Acclaimed concert pianist Van Cliburn opens up to documentary filmmakers in this release that offers an intimate look at Cliburn's life and career presented through a collection of interviews with the pianist himself as well as those who know him best. Performance footage not previously broadcast or commercially available offers something new for Cliburn fans who think they've seen it all, and revealing conversations with such contemporaries as Marilyn Horne, Leontyne Price, and others offer a look at the side of Cliburn rarely seen by the public. An accompanying audio compact disc offers complete performances of songs heard in the documentary.
