Today's programme features two of the youngest members on the current programme; nineteen-year-old trombonist Peter Moore, who last year became the youngest ever member of the London Symphony Orchestra, and the Italian pianist Beatrice Rana who, at 22 years of age has already appeared with some of the world's leading orchestras.
