Season 2: Episode 12 - Bach to the Future
This week on From the Top at Carnegie Hall, we see Johann Sebastian Bach through the eyes of 11-year old Hilda Huang from Palo Alto, California, who plays the piano and hopes to share her love of Bach’s music with the world. We then meet 15-year old Kyla Moscovich from Tarrytown, New York who grew up playing her trumpet at jazz clubs, where she was once heard by Tony Bennett. Kyla also enjoys classical trumpet music. The Colburn School Honors String Quartet, a Californian group comprised of 16-year old John Heffernan and 17-year olds Akemi Leung, Rachel Li, and Eunice Kim, rounds out the episode with a lively performance of the fourth movement Presto from Mendelssohn’s String Quartet No. 3 in D major, Op. 44.
