Tune in to Classical MPR this Sunday for a reflective and appropriate selection of music and programming to to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
At 6 a.m., Pipedreams will have special compositions of lament and healing; at 8 a.m. we'll play a special selection of reflective songs. At 9 a.m., we'll air a special Performance Today Weekend program about music as a response to tragedy, and at 2:30 p.m. a live online-only performance from the Wordless Music Orchestra in New York City.
Pipedreams: compositions of lament, reflection and healing in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the tragedy of September 11, 2001.
Performance Today Weekend will look back at the music that formed our response to the tragedy: music that expressed anger and sadness, soothed and provided comfort. The show will feature conversations with musicians and composers whose personal and creative lives were changed by 9/11 and music that feels appropriate for today with the distance and perspective that ten years has provided.
A free concert on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, at The Temple of Dendur in The Sackler Wing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Wordless Music Orchestra will perform a world premiere live orchestration by Maxim Moston of William Basinski's ambient masterwork The Disintegration Loops, dlp 1.1, preceded by three other works of musical memory and remembrance: Ingram Marshall's Fog Tropes II, Osvaldo Golijov's Tenebrae, and Alfred Schnittke's Collected Songs Where Every Verse is Filled with Grief, as arranged and generously provided for this concert by the Kronos Quartet. This concert has been made possible by The Metabolic Studio and is co-presented by Wordless Music and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
