Performance Today Weekend
with Fred Child
This two hour weekly program features classical music in concert from studios and sites across the nation and around the world, as well as classical music news, interviews and features.
 9 AM
From the Top
w/ Peter Dugan
Hosted by pianist Peter Dugan, this highlights program features some of From the Top┬'s favorite moments from the past three seasons and includes more music than our standard format. We revisit the appearance of a young pianist who performs the music of Stravinsky and then discusses the impressive work he┬'s done in the field of environmental science. We┬'ll hear a teenage violinist┬'s performance of a dazzling work by Fritz Kreisler and enjoy her humorous tale of getting a persistent nose bleed just before playing with a major symphony orchestra. And a 14-year-old performs the only piece written for guitar by British composer, William Walton.
