29min 24sec : In studio with Alexander Melnikov

Is it crazy that Alexander Melnikov doesn't get sweaty palms when he pilots a plane, but he sometimes has crippling nerves when he's about to perform a piano recital?

Maybe, but maybe not. Melnikov joins host Fred Child in the studio to talk about overcoming nervousness and the depths of Franz Schubert's most difficult piece, "The Wanderer Fantasy."
