Cliburn died early Wednesday at his Fort Worth home surrounded by loved ones 
following a battle with bone cancer, said his publicist and longtime friend Mary
Lou Falcone.

Cliburn made what would be his last public appearance in September at the 50th anniversary of the prestigious piano competition named for him.
