Boston, MA / 267
This week’s From the Top comes to you from Fraser Performance Studio at WGBH in Boston, Massachusetts, where you’ll meet a young violinist who shared her music with her severely autistic brother and watched him use a song to be able to express his emotions for the very first time. You’ll also hear an outstanding soprano sing “The Lordly Hudson” by Ned Rorem, and hear a trio of teens play the vivacious final movement of the Brahms Second Piano Trio.
