Event Recorded live in 1972 (Brahms, Prokofiev) and 1960 (Rachmaninoff) in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory.

Summary The composers featured in this first release of solo recital material figured largely in Van Cliburn's repertoire. His Brahms and Rachmaninoff are performances in the Grand Tradition, personal, powerful, and deeply poetic. Prokofiev calls for a spikier approach and Van Cliburn delivers a bold, brilliant account of one of the composer's most demanding scores for solo piano.
