Documentary filmmaker Peter Rosen directed this incisive backstage look at one of the world's most prestigious musical competitions, the Eleventh Annual Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. The Cliburn: Playing on the Edge captures the excitement, energy, and anxiety of a handful of gifted young people vying for honors which could help launch their careers, pitted against other young pianists with similar hopes and ambitions. Along with the drama of the competition, this film also includes extensive performance footage from these talented young musicians, some accompanied by a full orchestra led by James Conlon.~Mark Deming
