About the show
From Troy New York, this week's From the Top features master cellist, Matt Haimovitz as our special guest artist. Maestro Haimovitz performs one of the most gorgeous pieces of chamber music written for the cello--David Popper's Requiem--with two wonderful teenage cellists and host Christopher O'Riley. We test his wits against some of the young performers on the show in a humorous cello trivia competition, and the program culminates with some of the genre bending Maestro Haimovitz has become famous for-—a rousing finale arranged for 5 cellos.
