Channel 4 has commissioned Alexander to compose a concerto featuring some of the world’s most brilliant young musicians. Last week, Alex travelled to the USA in search of prodigious talent. This week, he goes to Shanghai in search of China’s most brilliant piano prodigies. With help from two piano professors at the Shanghai Conservatory, Alex meets and auditions four astonishing young pianists aged eight to 12. He then faces the difficult task of deciding which one to choose – and breaking the news.
