Filipino pianist Cecile Licad has a nightclub voice and sultry looks, but when she plays Rachmaninoff, she may as well be a native-born Russian. We hear her onstage at La Jolla SummerFest, in a chat with Performance Today host Fred Child.

Then, she plays Mendelssohn's "Song Without Words," Op. 53, No. 3, and the opening movement to the Sonata No. 2 by Rachmaninoff.
