: Two Young Stars

Piano Keys Steve Cole

Today we're featuring two amazing young pianists whose stars are rising. Conrad Tao is 17, still finishing his studies at the Juilliard School in New York. Earlier this week, Tao won a prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant. We'll hear him in recital in Florida. Yuja Wang is 25, and has been delivering jaw-dropping performances ever since she appeared on the international scene about a decade ago. We'll hear her in concert in San Francisco, playing Ravel's Concerto for the Left Hand.
