Mozart Can Tell the Difference
For the first time in the history of The Cliburn Competition, semifinalists were required to perform a Mozart concerto.

The Struggles of Byron Janis
He's pushing 90 now, and the mellifluous tones that used to emanate effortlessly from his talented hands now come with increasing difficulty. Byron Janis, however, lives for music.
