We check in on the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition to hear from two young pianists who advanced from the preliminary to the semi-final round. First, Roberto Plano plays the Sonata, K. 239 by Scarlatti. And then we hear Davide Cabassi (DA-vee-deh ka-BAS-see) in Claude Debussy's Jardin sous la pluie, or "The Garden in the Rain," from a collection of pieces called Estampes.
