Classical Music for 9/11
James David Jacobs hosts an early afternoon of classical music that heals and inspires, including Charles Ives's Second Orchestral Set, subtitled "Hanover Square, at the End of a Tragic Day," written in reaction to the New York public's reaction to the 1915 sinking of the Lusitania.  Also on the program is Beethoven's String Quartet in A minor, "Heiliger Dankgesang," a work that offers transcendent hope in the face of adversity.

Illuminessence, Live from Jordan Hall
Laura Carlo hosts a live concert broadcast with the NEC Youth Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Benjamin Zander.  The program includes Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings and Jules Massenet's "Meditation" from Thaïs.  The centerpiece of the program is the world premiere of Silvio Amato's Illuminessence:  prayers for peace.  Commissioned by the Vatican, the oratorio touches on the commonality of human aspiration and the universal spiritual impulse as expressed in the prayers of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.

In Concert from Trinity Church, Wall St. in New York City

Classical Music for 9/11
Further musical reflection on the tenth anniversary of 9/11 comes in the form of Benjamin Britten's War Requiem, a pacifist masterpiece built on a combination of Latin text and poetry by Wilfred Owen.  The day ends with John Adams's On the Transmigration of Souls, commissioned by the New York Philharmonic for the first anniversary of 9/11 and constructed on musical elements, the words of survivors' reminiscences of the lost, and missing person signs.
