Hey kids. Check it out. This week I sit down with 18-year-old wunderkind (and current Mannes student) pianist Thomas Nickell in a short version of my usual show. Thomas just made his Carnegie Hall debut with the North American premiere of David Matthews' Piano Concerto, op. 11 with the UK-based Orchestra of the Swan. We talked about non-classical influences, the prodigy label, and other such things. Enjoy!
