About

“Is he the best?” Khrushchev asked a nervous jury in 1958, “Then give him the prize.” At the first International
Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow during the height of the Cold War, the gold medal went to the young American
pianist Van Cliburn. On his return to New York he was carried aloft through the streets in triumph. The conductor
Kondrashin, no stranger to such acclaim, met with similar success when he came to New York in 1962. He knew how to
render the innate Russian-ness of Rachmaninov’s compositions imbued with religious fervour (like The Bells, his
universally respected choral symphony).
