It's an interesting story of Van Cliburn's professional life with lots of review quotes.
As a musician, I found the description of his mother's teaching method fascinating. I found Van's life philosophy to be very inspirational.
This is not a tell-all biography by any means. It gives not a clue to Van's private life, though it speaks often of Van's devotion to the Baptist Church.
I was puzzled as to why this was so until I heard in the credits that it was published by a religious firm.
The only really unfortunate part of this production to me was the excruciating name and foreign language pronunciation of the narrator.
Couldn't he just ask somebody for help? Given Van's high standards of music-making, this slapdash performance is insulting to his memory and the listener.
