Video Poster


Show 294 was recorded at the Aspen Music Festival and School in Aspen, Colorado, where many of the world’s top young musicians come to study during the summer. An outstanding teenage violinist from Shanghai triumphs in his performance of one of the most difficult and virtuosic pieces written for unaccompanied violin (see the video here), and we’ll meet a young flutist with a moving story about being adopted as an 18-year-old into a new family.
