Legendary Cliburn medalist returns for a concert at TCU

“This polonaise was written by Chopin as a protest of the invasion of the Russian army to Poland,” explains pianist Mikhail Voskresensky, who will be performing the Polonaise in f Op. 44 at TCU’s Piano Texas Festival in Fort Worth. The work is significant for Voskresensky, who emigrated to the US from his home country of Russia last year in protest of the war with Ukraine. In this feature, he chats about the upcoming concert, along with his special relationship with Fort Worth (which began by winning the bronze medal at the first Cliburn competition in 1962!).
