Chrisopher O'Riley has hosted NPR's showcase of young classical musicians, From the Top, for nearly 20 years. But his latest performance was in a hit off-Broadway show, Symphonie Fantastique.

Until recently, most classical music videos have been humdrum affairs. Musicians, in concert attire, earnestly produce their notes with eyes closed and heads tilted in a beatific expression, somewhere between a migraine and an attempt to channel Bach from the heavens.
