Lincoln Center is sad to learn of the passing of the legendary pianist Van Cliburn (1934-2013). The great pianist had several memorable performances at Lincoln Center, including with the Philadelphia Orchestra during the inaugural week of Avery Fisher Hall in 1962 (then Philharmonic Hall), with the Juilliard Orchestra in 1969 for the opening of Alice Tully Hall, and with the New York Philharmonic in 1976 for the debut broadcast of Live From Lincoln Center.
