CLASSICAL | From the Top 

Pianist Christopher O'Riley brings his popular NPR program From the Top back to Rochester's Eastman Theatre on Sunday for what is sure to be a mesmerizing set of performances from prodigiously talented classical musicians ranging in age from 14 to 17. The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra will join the three featured soloists — pianist and Pittsford native Raymond Feng; clarinetist Alec Manasse; and pianist Esther Yu — in performances of music by Grieg, Mozart, and Elgar, respectively. The program, which will be broadcast on Monday, February 8, will also showcase the orchestral piece "Maelström" by composer Benjamin Wenzelberg, who at age 16 has already written an opera. If you've ever been in need of a concert to restore your faith in the future of classical music performance and its continuing legacy, From the Top may just be the panacea.

From the Top, recorded live, will take place Sunday January 17, at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs Street. 3 p.m. $15-$79. rpo.org; fromthetop.org.
