Pianist Imogen Cooper has had a tremendous career for more than 50 years now. But looking back, she'd like to tell her younger self to "be courageous. Feel the fear. And do it anyway." On today's episode, hear about Imogen Cooper's life lessons, and then a Haydn piano sonata from a concert at Spivey Hall in Morrow, Georgia.
