The Amstel Quartet (Maarten van Rossem/The Amstel Quartet)

We're crossing our t's and dotting our i's this week on the Young Artists Showcase, as we return to recordings of earlier performances that have not yet been heard in full on the show. While selections from these recordings, and many of the artists, have been featured, we're excited to explore further performances that are as-yet unplayed, and perhaps undiscovered -- at least on the Young Artists Showcase.


Juan Crisóstomo Arriaga-- D Major Sinfonia, performed by the Student Orchestra of the Munich Conservatory, conducted by Martin Wettges

Eugène Ysaÿe-- Solo Sonata No. 5, performed by violinist Kyung-Jun Kim

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart-- Schon lacht der holde Frühling, performed by Chen Reiss, soprano, Shirley Brill, clarinet and Jonathan Aner, piano

Francis Poulenc-- Sonata for clarinet and piano, performed by Shirley Brill, clarinet, Jonathan Aner, piano

Alexander Glazunov-- Canzona, Variation and the finale from Glazunov's Opus 109, performed by the Amstel Quartet

Perry Weiner from Brooklyn

Why does Bob Sherman continue to showcase young musicians from an array of nationalities, yet never, never have young one musician from an Arabic country, not even one recruit from the Daniel Barenboim-Edward Said Israeli-Palestinian Youth Orchestra?
