Where would you be with out a bit of culturadle to reawaken the brain cells after the weekend. Sixteen-year-old Alexander Prior is one of England's most talented and prolific young composers. He began composing at the age of eight and has already written more than 40 works including symphonies, concertos, two ballets, two operas and a Requiem Mass. Now Channel 4 has commissioned Alexander to compose a concerto featuring some of the world's most brilliant young musicians. He travels to the USA and China to hand-pick four child prodigies, and the chosen children are then flown to the UK to premiere his concerto under his baton at The Sage Gateshead, accompanied by the Northern Sinfonia orchestra. In the first film, Alex travels to Miami in search of his prodigious talents. Among the children are two violinists: Simone, a 12-year-old Harry Potter fanatic, and Michael, a charismatic 13-year-old who hates practising and would rather be playing basketball or dancing to hip hop. Two cellists are also in the running: 15-year-old Nathan, whose prodigious abilities were first realised when he was spotted air-conducting aged just three; and 16-year-old Oliver, whose family live in seclusion on an isolated island off Seattle.
