Simon & Garfunkel Album Among 25 To Be Preserved
Van Cliburn's Cold War piano performance in Moscow when he won the prestigious Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition at 23 also was selected. At the time in 1958, Time magazine noted his appearance and tour of the Soviet Union "has had more favorable impact on more Russians than any U.S. export of word or deed since World War II."
Earlier this year, the Library of Congress unveiled an extensive plan to help libraries and archives nationwide preserve recorded sound to guard against losing historic recordings. It's proposing 32 recommendations to Congress on actions to preserve endangered audio.
For his part, Garfunkel said he's still working, writing poems, putting together a book and singing. He said he's working to regain his voice after having vocal troubles and ramping up to get back to the stage. He wouldn't rule out a reunion with Simon when the time is right.
"Who knows what the future brings?" Garfunkel said. "This is my old buddy, the first friend I made in life."___ Library of Congress: http://www.loc.gov/ ___ Follow Brett Zongker on Twitter at https://twitter.com/DCArtBeat
