This week, From the Top comes to you from Carnegie Music Hall in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where you’ll hear a talented 17-year-old euphonium player perform the music of Simone Mantia and a 16-year-old violinist play the Bartok Second Rhapsody. Also, teenagers from the Philadelphia area perform from Schubert’s monumental “Death and the Maiden” quartet and an unusually dynamic young pianist/composer plays Chopin and an excerpt from one of his own pieces.
