NPR’s From the Top with Host Christopher O’Riley: New York, New York / Show 355
From Carnegie Hall’s beautiful Weill Music Room in New York City, this show brings together a line up of fantastic young musicians from across the nation and beyond. We hear an 11-year-old violinist from New York stunningly perform Hubay’s Carmen Fantasie Brillante, we meet a pianist from Los Angeles who views performing as a form of service, and a teenage bassoonist from Venezuela, now studying at the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan, dazzles the audience with his mature musicality and virtuosity.
