The Russian Romantic composers are a world unto themselves, and no one interpreted them better than Van Cliburn. Sadly, his touch with other genres was never quite as deft, but who cares, I could listen to Van Cliburn play Rachmaninoff until all the cows in Texas come home... :)
Here's a link to V.C. playing one of my favorites, the Prelude in G Minor...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwE9JEqKFnI
Thanks. Will listen to it after breakfast.
