Brass Final

BBC Young Musician, 2014 Episode 5 of 8

After having been treated to some outstanding music-making in the strings, percussion, woodwind and keyboard finals of BBC Young Musician 2014, brass takes centre stage as five talented young performers compete for the last remaining place in the semi-final.

With repertoire from Schumann to Enescu and Kurt Weill, classical guitarist Milos and trumpet player Alison Balsom - herself a BBC Young Musician finalist in 1998 - introduce extensive highlights and behind-the-scenes access from the competition. Hoping to impress the jury are two trumpet players, 13-year-old Will Thomas and 18-year-old Matilda Lloyd, and three trombonists, 18-year-old Lewis Bettles, 14-year-old Isobel Daws and 14-year-old Ellena Newton.

Whoever wins will be one step closer to reaching the grand final at Edinburgh's Usher Hall, where only one will be crowned BBC Young Musician 2014.
