This week, we revisit a private recital with winners of the 2011 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, which first aired last December. American pianist Andrew Tyson, German violinist Veit Hertenstein and Taiwanese-American violinist Paul Huang all took first prize just days before their performance for the McGraw-Hill Companies Young Artists Showcase.

Applicants from 28 countries were narrowed down to eight finalists, and ultimately these three young instrumentalists were chosen for their artistry. Today we hear why.
