Grand Final

Episode 8 of 8

Clemency Burton-Hill, Alison Balsom and Josie D'Arby present coverage of the final, as three musicians each perform a full concerto with the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

After a series full of thrilling performances, BBC Young Musician 2016 reaches its conclusion. Now just three exceptional musicians remain, as the Barbican Hall in the City of London plays host to the final. In this legendary venue, three finalists perform a full concerto with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the celebrated British conductor Mark Wigglesworth.

Clemency Burton-Hill, trumpet player Alison Balsom - herself a finalist in 1998 - and Josie D'Arby present the coverage from what's sure to be a breathtaking climax to this year's competition, bringing behind-the-scenes insights and providing analysis of each performance.

We also hear from pianist Martin James Bartlett, who won this competition two years ago, and performs the first movement from Prokofiev's Piano Concerto no 3. Who will follow in his footsteps and become the winner of BBC Young Musician 2016?
