It was difficult to listen to the radio this
morning, despite the beauty of the music. It was important to listen to the radio this morning, despite the sadness and pain in the music.
I hadn’t wanted to think about it. The music forced me to feel more than I had planned.
Performance Today’s memorial “Ten Years Later” program,
including Steve Reich’s “WTC 9/11” and excerpts from Robert Moran’s Trinity Requiem can be heard online for the next week. Listen, if you can bear it.
This Sunday at 6pm, the
WVU Symphony Orchestra will perform John Beall’s September Morning: Elegy for 2001, written five years ago.
And as I write this little unplanned post, I am listening to “Sarabanda in Memoriam” by Aaron Jay Kernis. I can’t imagine this recording on MySpace is legal, but it is there. You can also
download an mp3 or purchase a CD from Amazon.
