From Athens Georgia, this week's From the Top features an unusually expressive teenage cellist performing Ravel's sacred masterpiece, "Kadish." We also meet a 17-year-old pianist, who has a strong case of synesthesia -- so strong, she can occasionally taste the music ... and a young guitarist performs one of the most famous of all Spanish guitar pieces by Francisco Tarrega.

From the Top, with host Christopher O'Riley, is a weekly radio series that showcases the nation's most outstanding young classical musicians. Each one-hour program presents pre-collegiate musicians whose stunning individual performances are combined with lively interviews, unique pre-produced segments, lighthearted sketches and musical games.
