2017 VAN CLIBURN INTERNATIONAL PIANO COMPETITION WINNERS
THE CLIBURN DISCOVERS EXCEPTIONAL ARTISTS
The Van Cliburn International Piano Competition exists to share excellent classical music with the largest international audience possible and to launch the careers of its winners every four years. Building on a rich tradition that began with its 1962 origins in honor of Van Cliburn and his vision for using music to serve audiences and break down boundaries, the Cliburn seeks, with each edition, to achieve the highest artistic standards while utilizing contemporary tools to advance its reach.
TO INTRODUCE THEM TO THE WORLD
The Fifteenth Cliburn Competition, held May 25–June 10, 2017, at Bass Performance Hall, did just that: an exponentially larger audience witnessed the talents of 30 extraordinary pianists from 15 countries; the eyes of the music world focused sharply on Fort Worth, Texas; the winners were chosen through a carefully developed artistic process; and the medalists now begin their touring careers with a widespread fanbase.
AND TO AUDIENCES IN YOUR COMMUNITY.
Cliburn artists are available for recital, chamber, and concerto engagements. Aware of the importance of engaging the community on all levels, they also offer education and outreach programs.
