Pianist Orli Shaham guest hosts. We meet a sensational 11-year-old pianist, a self-directed flutist who describes the mouthwatering food he finds in his hometown, a violinist who shares a moving piece inspired by the Holocaust, a young harpist who explores her creativity on her own Youtube Channel, and a thoughtful teenage violinist with a multicultural background.

Pianist Orli Shaham’s new recording of Mozart Sonatas came out to rave reviews from around the world: “Highly expressive,” “engrossing,” “Altogether exceptional,” and “An absolute must for any of Mozart’s fans.”
