12:00 FROM THE TOP with America's finest young musicians; recorded December 5, 2019 - Hosted by pianist Peter Dugan, this program features some of From the Top’s favorite moments from the last 3 seasons and includes more music than our standard format.  We revisit the appearance of a young pianist who performs the music of Stravinsky and then discusses the impressive work he’s done in the field of environmental science.  We’ll hear a teenage violinist’s performance of a dazzling work by Fritz Kreisler and enjoy her humorous tale of getting a persistent nose bleed just before playing with a major symphony orchestra, And a 14-year-old performs the only piece written for guitar by British composer, William Walton

The Metropolitan Opera’s 2021-22 season of live Saturday matinee radio broadcasts continues with one of the core pieces of the Italian opera repertory, Puccini’s Tosca, a searing melodrama that has thrilled audiences since its premiere in 1900. Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts. Soprano Sondra Radvanovsky stars as the diva Floria Tosca, a role in which she’s won extraordinary praise from international audiences and critics. Tenor Brian Jagde is Tosca’s lover, the artist Mario Cavaradossi, and bass-baritone Evgeny Nikitin is the Baron Scarpia, the brutal police chief.
