FORT WORTH (AP) - Hundreds of items from the estate of the celebrated pianist Van Cliburn are scheduled to go up for auction next month.

The New York auction house Christie’s has scheduled a March 4-5 auction of the Van Cliburn collection. The items were left behind in Cliburn’s Fort Worth-area mansion when he died a year ago this month.

It’ll be the second auction of items from the Cliburn collection. Bidders bid more than $4.3 million for 166 lots of antiques, jewelry and other items in May 2012.

Among the items available in this latest bidding is a 144-year-old piano bought by Cliburn’s mother, Rildia Bee O’Bryan Cliburn, in the 1940s and given to her son.
