Mr. Monaghan taught me how to breathe.  He was completely blind and read and composed in Braille. My mother helped me reach the keys of a piano before I could walk.  Mr. Grammatico showed me how hold a saxophone and later, a bassoon.  Mrs. Pritchard taught me to love dissonance, and Miss Konigiser opened my ears to Sondheim, Lerner, and Lowe.

For the past six weeks, judges have been traveling the world to hear potential competitors audition. One notable stop is Moscow — where the American pianist for whom the contest is named stunned the world 59 years ago, winning the International Tchaikovsky Competition at the height of the Cold War.

The Polish-born conductor and composer Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, who led the Minnesota Orchestra for nearly two decades and worked with that symphony for well over 50 years in total, died Tuesday at age 93.
