NPR’s From the Top with Host Christopher O’Riley: College Park, Maryland / 232
We’re at Dekelboum Concert Hall at the University of Maryland in College Park this week, where a young bassoonist plays the music of Alexandre Tansman and shares an inspiring story about determination, and a young pianist reminds us what it feels like to practice music when you’re only five. You’ll also meet a spectacular piano trio from the Juilliard Pre-College Division and hear a 17-year-old play Baroque music on an authentic Baroque violin.
