Cliburn Winner Kholodenko Tonight at 5

Jun 14, 2013

Tune in tonight at 5 PM to hear the sensational pianist Vadym Kholodenko - who triumphed this week at the Van Cliburn Competition in Texas - in his victory performance of Mozart's Piano Concerto no. 21 (the one with the beautiful "Elvira Madigan" slow movement). Leonard Slatkin conducts the Fort Worth Symphony. Also on the program is another highly acclaimed young pianist, Conrad Tao, performing one of his own compositions.
