This has been a Cinderella story in the making for twelve years. Valentina Lisitsa first came to WFMT in 2001 with loads of passion for the instrument, determination, charm and an entrepreneurial mind. Today she has registered nearly 55,000,000 views on YouTube, has a Decca contract, and is one of the most celebrated pianists in the world.
See the WFMT Impromptu with Valentina Lisitsa who offered some candid reflections on the road she’s traveled, and some dazzling piano playing, too.
