The host of your Sunday noontime show "From the Top," pianist Christopher O'Riley, and cellist Matt Haimovitz visit the cozy NPR home of Tiny Desk Concerts. Tucked into a casual office corner, backed by shelves of books and trinkets, reading the music off their tablets, they offer up some Beethoven and Philip Glass and Leos Janacek, with a nod to "The Unbearable Lightness of Being." And as a fun side note, this piece was co-produced by Tom Huizinga, whose reports you often read here on the Music & Culture Blog.
