Leila Josefowicz

January 5, 2012

Leila Josefowicz

Violinist Leila Josefowicz is planning on cancelling a few performances in the spring. How does she know so far in advance that she won't be up to playing? It turns out it's for a very good reason. She's expecting her second child. In today's show, we'll hear Josefowicz in a recital that went on as planned. She plays the Schubert B Minor Rondo in St. Paul.
