Extractions: Maestro of Contradictions: Van Cliburn's long career embraces many eccentricities. Pianist Van Cliburn's early triumph in Moscow has made him a rare, bankable star of classical music By Philip Collins H E BEGAN PIANO lessons at age 3. Twenty years later, he was the subject of a ticker-tape parade in New York, the only one ever held in honor of a classical musicianafter all, nobody had expected a 23-year-old American student from Juilliard to steal the gold at the First International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, and with a performance of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1, no less. From that moment on, Van Cliburn would be recognized as one of America's most bankable musical superstars. Deservedly so, for he had bested the Russians at their own game during the peak of Cold War hostilities; he was even nicknamed "the American Sputnik." Cliburn and Tchaikovsky's Concerto No. 1 have been inseparable ever since. The work grew to be pianist's trademark, and his 1958 recording of it was the first classical record to go platinum. Two decades later, Cliburn would again shock the music world by announcing his withdrawal from performing. His sabbatical surprised many, but Cliburn's reputation for eccentricities had created a popular mystique that thrived on contradictions (excepting his repertoire, which was remarkably staid). Here was an artist who neither smoked nor drank, and routinely began his recitals with "The Star Spangled Banner" (one of America's greatest classical works, he has said, although the music is actually English in origin). Furthermore, he wrote poetry and was labeled "vegetarian" (erroneously so) because of his finicky dietary requirements on tour. So it wasn't completely unprecedented that Cliburnlike the late Glenn Gouldwithdrew from concertizing.
