NPR’s From the Top with Host Christopher O’Riley: Boston, Massachusetts / 283
From Jordan Hall in Boston, Massachusetts, this week’s From the Top features “The Lark” by Mikhail Glinka brought to life by a wonderfully musical 11-year-old pianist. We’ll also enjoy some unaccompanied Bach performed by a very thoughtful teenager from the Boston area, and a teenage string quartet shares moving stories about the healing power of music in their own lives.
