(Martina Filjak - sensational sounds coming out of Croatia)

This week's concert heads up to the Basque region in Spain for a concert with the Orquesta Sinfonica de Bilbao lead by Manuel Hernandez Silva and featuring Croatian wunderkind Pianist Martina Filjak in a program of Haydn, Schumann and Dvorak recorded live by Radio Nacional Espana on November 26, 2009.

Here's the program:
