NPR’s From the Top with Host Christopher O’Riley: Boston, Massachusetts / 295
From our home at NEC’s Jordan Hall in Boston, show 295 features a 13-year-old violinist whose performance of the music of Robert Schumann beautifully conveys the composer’s romantic fervor; we also meet an internationally award-winning young pianist; and a teenage boy shares the humorous story of studying and then rejecting about five different instruments before finally discovering his lifelong soulmate: the French horn.
