NPR’s From the Top: Los Angeles, CA / Show 366
Recorded in the famed Hollywood Scoring Studio in Los Angeles, we meet a brilliant young pianist who grew up in Hollywood enjoying film music so much that she founded her own multi-disciplinary arts collaborative at her high school. Also on the program is a heroic performance of a piece by Planel for horn and a teenage violinist rocks Ravel’s virtuosic “Tzigane” with guest host Peter Dugan.
