Episode 1

Music from the final rounds of 2010's BBC Young Musician of the Year. With Peter Moore in Edward Gregson: Trombone Concerto. Plus music by Hummel, Torke, Gershwin and Berlioz.

On Sunday, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales plays host to the grand final of the BBC Young Musician competition at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff. That concert is being broadcast both on Radio 3 and BBC 4 TV, and throughout this week's Afternoons Jonathan Swain presents performances from the final rounds (the percussion final forms part of Performance on 3 on Friday evening). There's also a strong focus on youth in the other music this week, featuring competition finalists from previous years, and on Wednesday we go live to the orchestra's home in BBC Hoddinott Hall, Cardiff.
