Suzy Klein presents the second of six programmes showcasing the best young pianists from around the world, as they reach the climactic final stages of 'The Leeds'. She introduces the youngest of this year's finalists, 22-year-old Jiayan Sun from China, who performs one of Prokofiev's most popular and dazzling works, his virtuosic Piano Concerto No 3. Will it be enough to impress the judges?

Suzy assess his chances with her guest experts, internationally-renowned pianists Noriko Ogawa and Tom Poster. Suzy also goes behind the scenes to experience the warm welcome and daunting challenges in store for new arrivals at the competition, and she travels to Europe in search of the man who became the first modern piano superstar nearly 200 years ago.
