Recorded: Sunday, March 2, 2008

This week's show, from New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall, includes a 16-year-old violinist playing Gershwin, a teenage bassoonist who can solve a Rubik's Cube in under two minutes, and a 13-year old cellist who plays some devilishly difficult variations on a single string.

Violinist Hannah Ji, 16, from Basking Ridge, NJ, a Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist, performs the first two movements from Gershwin’s Preludes
