Russian-born American pianist Yuliya Gorenman joins the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra this Valentine's Day weekend for two performances of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major. Currently a professor of piano at American University, Gorenman's life story includes everything from selling coconuts on a beach in Italy, to performing the complete cycle of 32 Beethoven piano sonatas. Producer Deb Lamberton spoke with the irrepressible Ms. Gorenman, who has been called "a pianist without fear."
