Contemporary Works Chosen for Van Cliburn Competition

Some mighty fine talented composers to hear at the upcoming Cliburn competition. (Personal favorite of the crop is J. Higdon).

"Each young pianist has chosen a piece to perform in the competition's semifinal round next month from among five works: Higdon's Secret and Glass Gardens, Kellogg's Scarlet Thread, Sebastian Currier's Scarlatti Cadences and Brainstorm, Jan Krzywicki's Nocturnals, and Ruth Schonthal's Sonata quasi un'improvvisazione."
