The Cliburn becomes as much a test of character as a musical proving ground. All of the onstage brilliance and backstage drama takes place in the year in which the inspiration and namesake of the competition, Van Cliburn, passed away - this film is a tribute to his memory, and to his particular genius.
The production has been awarded the Czech Crystal Award for best documentary at the Golden Prague festival 2015.
