Piano Man

| June 25, 2012 | Parties

He’s tickled the keys to Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff and Brahms, and he’s performed for royalty, heads of state and a handful of U.S. presidents, but pianist Van Cliburn isn’t just an iconic musician—and Texan. His interests extend beyond those ivories to art, manifested in an extensive collection, more than 150 exceptional pieces of which were recently put on the auction block. Christie’s and Allie Beth Allman hosted an invitation-only cocktail reception at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas, to preview the historically important English furniture and silver, Russian art and fine jewels.
