Acclaimed for his engaging and deeply committed performances, the pianist Christopher O’Riley is known to millions as the host of NPR’s From the Top where he introduces the next generation of classical music stars to almost a million listeners each week. He has garnered widespread praise for his untiring efforts to reach new audiences, performing as a soloist on piano with virtually all of the major American orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, Chicago Symphony, National Symphony, and San Francisco Symphony. Living by the Duke Ellington adage, “There are only two kinds of music, good music and bad,” O’Riley—a proponent of the former in all of its guises—has received the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant and an equally coveted four-star review from Rolling Stone magazine. He will be joined by the New York Chamber Soloists; acclaimed as an outstanding ensemble of distinguished virtuosi, they have maintained a unique niche in the chamber music world for over five decades.

Ludwig van Beethoven: Trio in B-flat Major, Op. 11, for clarinet, cello, and piano; Igor Stravinsky: L’Histoire du soldat for clarinet, violin, and piano; Béla Bartók: Piano Sonata; Maurice Ravel: Sonata for violin and cello; Béla Bartók: Contrasts for violin, clarinet, and piano
