The Cliburn presents Cliburn at Home
The Cliburn's Cliburn at Home digital line-up includes Cliburn Masterpiece, a series that examines the who, what, when, where, and how of the greatest piano works. On select Sundays, Cliburn laureates and other esteemed specialists, in and outside the field of music, join host Buddy Bray to lead us through the story of each piece - the composer, the background, the narrative, the characters, the technical difficulties, and more. Each episode ends with a standout, full performance of the piece from a past Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.
Cliburn Kids, which takes place every Tuesday, is a collection of entertaining 7- to 10-minute videos designed to introduce children to the fun of classical music. How does music paint pictures, tell stories, express feelings? Host Buddy Bray and guest artists use individual pieces to explore topics that delve into the way music is organized and structured, counting and rhythm, expressive elements, and sometimes just lighthearted enjoyment.
