12:00 FROM THE TOP with America's finest young musicians; recorded May 2022 - The young musicians on this week’s From the Top bring quite a range of musical choices to the program including a Nocturne … a romance … a portrait of a poet … and a piece that chronicles the African diaspora. We’ll also meet a young piano duo who’s members are a bit like the odd couple, but they perform the music of Rachmaninoff with remarkable unity

Anika Veda, flute, 17, from Palatine, IL performs Portraits of Langston, I. Helen Keller, IV. Harlem's Summer Night by Valerie Coleman

Alex Laing, clarinet and Peter Dugan, piano perform Clarinet Concerto No. 1 by Carl Maria von Weber arr. Laing and Dugan



The Metropolitan Opera’s 2023-24 season continues with a treasure from Met broadcast history, going back 50 years to the day: Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore, The Elixir of Love, starring the magnificent tenor Luciano Pavarotti in a performance from April 6, 1974. Pavarotti starred in one of his most acclaimed roles, as the shy, lovestruck village boy Nemorino, opposite soprano Judith Blegen in a winning performance as the wealthy – and willful – Adina. Baritone John Reardon was Sargent Belcore, and bass Ezio Flagello was Dr. Dulcamara. Max Rudolf conducted.
