He played a concert at Austin's Municipal Auditorium, a barn of a place, to a sold-out audience. I was, in the vernacular of the time, blown away.</p><p>As soon as the concert was over, I rushed down from my balcony seat to wait in the long line of well wishers for my opportunity to have my program autographed. By this time, Mr. Cliburn had actually come down into the audience. He was, in a sense, a man of the people.</p> Wed, 27 Feb 2013 18:21:03 +0000 James Baker 7092 at http://tpr.org Van Cliburn: A Heart As Big As Texas Van Cliburn, The 'American Sputnik' Of Piano, Dies At 78 http://tpr.org/post/van-cliburn-american-sputnik-piano-dies-78 <span style="line-height: 1.5;">Legendary pianist Van </span>Cliburn<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> has died at his home in Fort Worth, former CEO of the </span>Cliburn<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Foundation Richard </span>Rodzinski<span style="line-height: 1.5;">&#160;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">confirms.&#160;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Cliburn was diagnosed with bone cancer in August.&#160;</span><p> Wed, 27 Feb 2013 18:17:52 +0000 Bill Zeeble 7093 at http://tpr.org Van Cliburn, The 'American Sputnik' Of Piano, Dies At 78
