From 404 hopefuls who auditioned across the United Kingdom for BBC Young Musician 2012, 122 were selected to be heard at the category auditions. Now only 25 young performers remain in the category finals, with the keyboard final opening the series.

With an opportunity to impress the panel of adjudicators and reach the final in May, this week sees Dominic Degavino, Victor Lim, Yuanfan Yang, Adam Boeker and Martin Bartlett take to the stage.

Presenter Clemency Burton-Hill introduces the five with extensive highlights from their performances, as they bid to become a category winner and gain a place in the semi-final.

Adjudicated by conductor Gareth Jones, Richard McMahon, head of the Keyboard department of the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and Ronan O’Hora, head of Keyboard studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, who will be selected to perform again and represent their category?
