This evening I watched the semi final of the BBC Young Musician of the Year 2012. An hour an a half swept past like an express train. What talent, what performances, from all five teenagers! However, only one of them made me want to rush out and buy a CD: 15-year-old Charlotte Barbour-Condini playing that common and maligned instrument the recorder. Watch the YouTube video (bottom right corner to expand). The final is on BBC Two on Sunday at 6pm (CLICK).
