Suzy Klein presents the third of six programmes showcasing the best young pianists from around the world, as they reach the climactic final stages of 'The Leeds'. This time it's the turn of Australian finalist Jayson Gillham to step into the spotlight at Leeds Town Hall.

Suzy introduces his performance of Beethoven's perennially popular Piano Concerto No 5 (The Emperor). Regular guest experts, pianists Noriko Ogawa and Tom Poster, are on hand to give their insights and opinions before and after he takes the stage with the Halle Orchestra and conductor Sir Mark Elder, and Suzy explores the fascinating family history of the mechanical musical marvel that is the modern grand piano.
