In Episode 2, Alex travels to Shanghai to find the perfect young pianist. This Episode gives a great insight into the Chinese way of pushing children to become musical prodigies. Alex goes to great length to find children who love music, rather than those who are merely forced to practice all day by their parents

I went to their performance in London and was impressed by all of them. Simone Porter was incredible. You could also see how the young geniuses looked up to Alex as their role model. They worked beautifully together. Michael Province and Nathan Chan are very original characters as well, and it’s impressive to watch how Alex brought the best out of the 10 year old pianist Zhang Xiaoming.
