Van Cliburn Piano Competition

Audio will be available later today.

We're getting close to the end of the Twelfth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. As the final round begins, we check in with our correspondent in Fort Worth, Tex., critic Wayne Lee Gay. And we hear from 22-year-old Chinese finalist Chu-Fang Huang (choo-fung huhwong), who plays the Sonatas, K. 11 and K. 135 by Scarlatti.
