From Ravel to REM and everywhere in between, pianist Christopher O’Riley raises eyebrows. Host of National Public Radio’s popular music show, From the Top, O’Riley is well known for his eloquent and compelling musings on music and popular culture. One of the leading American pianists of his generation, he has skillfully expanded his own repertoire and performances beyond classical and into the rich uncharted territory of contemporary and alternative-rock. From groundbreaking transcriptions of Radiohead, Elliott Smith, and Nick Drake to unforgettably sublime interpretations of the classical canon, O’Riley stretches the piano beyond conventional boundaries with infectious passion.
