A Soviet pianist whose father competed against Van Cliburn 31 years ago is among six finalists chosen in the Eighth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition that wraps up in Ft. Worth, Tex., this weekend. Alexander Shtarkman's father, Naum, finished third behind the victorious Cliburn in the 1958 International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, a contest that rocketed Cliburn to fame. Two other Soviet musicians are also finalists, Elisso Bokvadze and Aleksei Sultanov. Other finalists out of a field of 38 that began competing May 27 are Jose Carlos Cocarelli of Brazil, Benedetto Lupo of Italy and Ying Tian of China.

--Wild applause and shouts of "Bravo!" rang out in Ft. Worth on Sunday after it was announced that the youngest of 38 competitors in the Eighth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition had won first place. Nineteen-year-old Aleksei Sultanov of the Soviet Union, regarded as the early crowd favorite for his aggressive performances, shook hands with Van Cliburn and actor Dudley Moore, who served as host. Jose Carlos Cocarelli, 30, of Brazil won the silver medal and Benedetto Lupo, 25, of Italy got the bronze.

In his local debut with the San Diego Symphony, Brazilian pianist Jose Carlos Cocarelli demonstrated the virtues that have won him numerous awards, including second prize in the 1989 Van Cliburn competition. Cocarelli's percussive, rhythmically incisive technique handily exploited the virtuoso brilliance of Prokofiev's familiar Third Piano Concerto.

As it recedes into history, the 1989 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in Fort Worth takes on more and more significance as a seminal event, not unlike the 1981 Cliburn Competition or, perhaps better, the 1958 Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. Like those others, the 1989 contest brought together as winners--after many fine young pianists had been eliminated in earlier rounds--six of the strongest talents of their generation, in a ranking still controversial, three years later.

When Aleksei Sultanov, the gold medalist of the eighth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, plays his first post-win recital June 22 at Ambassador Auditorium, the Soviet pianist begins a busy year that includes a debut recital at Carnegie Hall, a recording contract and other concert and recital appearances. "In this competition I wanted to get first prize or nothing," Sultanov said through an interpreter after his win Sunday night. Asked what he performed best, Sultanov said: "It's difficult to say. It's difficult to even remember what I did."
