Sixty years ago, a 23-year-old Texan went to Moscow at the height of the Cold War and came back an American hero and an international icon. The impact of Van Cliburn’s victory at the First International Tchaikovsky Competition cannot be overstated; he disregarded boundaries and brought the world together through excellent music and his signature warmth. But at the heart of this accomplishment was Van’s deep, abiding love of and connection to the music of Russia. On this 60th Anniversary occasion, we find it most fitting to celebrate Russian music through a series of concerts that will explore the different facets of its character. And we will bring in three Cliburn laureates, each of whom hail from Russia—Alexander Kobrin (2005 gold medalist), Yury Favorin (2017 finalist), and Georgy Tchaidze (2017 finalist)—to serve as artists-in-residence and help us explore the masterpieces of their homeland. The Rolston String Quartet also joins us in this adventure.
