The Cliburn, The Lone Star Film Festival and Performing Arts Fort Worth will be presenting the world premiere screening of the home grown documentary, Virtuosity, at Bass Performance Hall this Wednesday night, November 5th, at 7:00 p.m. The opening program for the Fort Worth film fest portrays some of the best young pianists on the planet as they attempt to make a name for themselves at a grueling piano competition.
In 2013, thirty young, yearning musicians from around the world competed in the Fourteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in Fort Worth, Texas. In the 90-minute documentary, viewers will have the opportunity to see the excitement and disappointments that the competitors experience as the 17-day music contest draws to its emotional and inevitable conclusion – the awarding of the Gold Medal to one participant.
The documentary is directed by Christopher Wilkinson, whose writing credits include Ali (2001), Nixon (1995) and Copying Beethoven (2006). Producer Lori Miller produced They Came To Play, the documentary which tells the inspirational stories of the participants of the Cliburn’s 2007 International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs. Christopher Wilkinson and Lori Miller, as well as the 2013 Cliburn winner, Vadym Kholodenko, will be in attendance for this premier event.
Tickets are free to the public and are general admission seating. Tickets can be ordered online through Bass Performance Hall with two tickets per order. You can watch excerpts of the Fourteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition with this inspiring highlights video reel below – featuring performance shots and interview segments, all set to Vadym Kholodenko's powerful performance of the Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 3.
