When Van Cliburn Ruled Moscow with Stuart Isacoff
The Society of the Four Arts
Stuart Isacoff returns to the Four Arts with his latest book “When the World Stopped to Listen.” It is a gripping account of how a 1958 piano competition in Moscow changed the dynamic of the Cold War. At a time when the Iron Curtain was at its heaviest, a polite, lanky Texan named Harvey Lavan “Van” Cliburn Jr. played with such virtuosity it captured the Russian spirit and showed the potential that art has to change the world. Stuart Isacoff ’s ongoing presence in the cultural landscape has included presentations at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Lincoln Center, at festivals around the world, and regular contributions on music and art in The Wall Street Journal. He has given lectures and piano performances at The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Verbier Festival and Academy (Switzerland), the Van Cliburn Piano Institute, and many others. Book signing and light refreshments to follow.
