On June 2, 1988, an extraordinary array of outstanding pianists gathered
in Carnegie Hall to celebrate the 135th anniversary of the first Steinway,
and the 500,000th piano manufactured by that company. Drawing on an
enormous range of virtuoso piano music, the 27 pianists demonstrate the
versatility and power of the instrument which has held the greatest
fascination for composers, performers, and audiences alike. Hosted by Van
Cliburn, this unique program reaches its climax with a dazzling
performance of Schumann's "Carnaval," in which the 21 movements are
divided between 19 pianists.
