Mihaela Ursuleasa, Romanian pianist

The music world was saddened to learn of the death late last week of Romanian pianist Mihaela Ursuleasa. She was only 33, and died of an apparent brain hemorrhage. Mihaela Ursuleasa stopped by the PT studios in 2008 for music and conversation with host Fred Child. PT staffers remember her as being smart and talented and engaging. In today's show, we'll rebroadcast portions of that 2008 interview, and her performance of music by Rachmaninoff and Chopin.
