In this episode: For her recent piece in The New York Times, "Is Music The Key To Success?," journalist Joanne Lipman interviewed high achievers who credit music experience directly to their professional achievements in other fields. Lipman is also the co-author of the new book Strings Attached, about her own childhood music teacher. 

Then, pianist Valentina Lisitsa -- one of the biggest names in classical music thanks, in part, to 62 million views on YouTube -- performs the music of Liszt in the Soundcheck studio.
