From his groundbreaking transcriptions of popular music artists to his unforgettably sublime and critically-acclaimed interpretations of the classical canon, brilliant and engaging pianist Christopher O’Riley has stretched the piano beyond conventional boundaries. As host of the popular classical music radio show, NPR’s From The Top, he has long championed the next generation of young musicians. O’Riley’s distinctively personal and elegant approach to repertoire has created entirely new audiences for classical music.
