All week long, we're taking a look back at some of our favorite shows from 2011. One of the most interesting people we met was PT Young Artist in Residence, pianist Charlie Albright. He's pursuing a music career with all the passion and energy you might expect, but there's more to him than that. In today's show, he performs the starkly beautiful piano sonata "1.X.1905," by Leos Janacek.
