From the Top comes from its home at NEC’s Jordan Hall in Boston this week, and it features a 13-year-old violinist whose performance of the music of Robert Schumann beautifully conveys the composer’s romantic fervor; we also meet an internationally award-winning young pianist; and a teenage boy shares the humorous story of studying and then rejecting about five different instruments before finally discovering his lifelong soulmate: the French horn. Listen Sunday at noon on Classical MPR. http://classicalmpr.org/listen
