Show 038 | Boston, Massachusetts

Recorded: Sunday, January 28, 2001

This week, From the Top comes to you from its home base, the exquisite Jordan Hall at the New England Conservatory of Music. Among the musical highlights are a Mozart trio on piano, clarinet and viola, a 2000 MTNA Competition winner, and a set of piano playing siblings. Also, Roving Reporter Hayley Goldbach reveals the "dark side" of the clarinet and shows how the piano can turn bickering siblings into the best of friends.
