Host Christopher O’Riley welcomes 17-year-old clarinetist Nicholas Graham, from Spartanburg, South Carolina, and roller-coaster-loving Conrad Tao, a 12-year-old “triple threat” from New York who not only plays the violin and piano, but is also an award-winning composer. This episode of From the Top: Live at Carnegie Hall features performances of Kreisler’s “Tambourin Chinois,” Schumann’s “Fantasiestucke for Clarinet and Piano,” and concludes with Conrad transporting the audience to Argentina with his original “Saturday Morning Tango.”
