    Van Cliburn...Eternal Memory

    Just found out that Van Cliburn left this transitory life because of Bone Cancer.

    He won the Muscovites hearts with his interpretations of Chaikovskii's 1st Piano Concerto and Rachmaninov's 2nd Piano Concerto at the '58 Chaikovskii Competition - The main juror at that competition was Svyatoslav Richter.............And Richter was no slouch at the piano.............

    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Indeed a tragic loss. He used to live here in Tucson, many years ago, and played with the local symphony orchestra on many occasions.

    An article from our local paper, the Arizona Daily Star.

    Thanx Kh - Van Cliburn's Rach 2nd. I heard on a recording when I was twelve and was so enamored of the romantic sweep being generated by that Texan...
