    My mom died in 1961, I was 8 years old. Shorty after my Dad a classical music lover took me to Interlochen Arts Camp to hear Van Cliburn with the International Youth Orchestra. The moon light over the water in the back ground was magical. That moment carried me through many a dark times. I became a life long fan. My daughter played oboe with the Concert orchestra when she was 14, long ago now but what wonderful memories remain of a once in a century talent. R.I.P. V.C.

    My mother had this wonderful recording on vinyl when I was a little girl. I played it to death and, when I wasn't listening to the record, begged for piano lessons. Eventually, she and my dad bought a piano, and I studied for eight years. Thank you, Mr. Cliburn - and rest in peace. BTW, this was the first classical album ever to sell a million copies. One listen and you'll know why.
  • One of the most accomplished classical album

    The phrasing is implacable! You gotta listen to the high resolution format (CD) via a good system to fully realize the glory of this recording! ACC or MP3 format would not work ;(
  • The one and only!

    Timeless and absolutely genius recording of the historic performance that got Van Clibern a first prize at the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow (1958). During the full bloom of the Cold War. He proved that Cold War does not exist between artists, or in music. It is only between the Governments. This event was talked about for decades after, including my years at Tchaikovsky Conservatory, and I am sure years after. The young guy from Texas showed everyone in world, including the most conservative musical circles in Russia how to play their own composer's music. And they believed him, and he won! This was equal to fall of the Art Berlin Wall! If you love Classical Music you owe to yourself to get this!
  • This is the historic Grammy-winning album

    This is the historic Grammy-winning album that brought Van Cliburn's famous interpretation of Tchaikovsky's 1st Piano Concerto to people's homes. It was the first classical album to go gold.
  • So happy to be on iTunes

    I had the CD but somehow lost it over several moves. Van Cliburn playing Rachmaninovs' Piano Concerto is the best to my untrained ears. The piano notes flow so effortlessly at times its feel like water streaming down a brook.

Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
