After a day of flag waving, speeches and poignant stories of 9-11-01 it is fitting to have some music to reflect on the past and wonder about the future. Mahler's Symphony No. 2 is the perfect choice. I'm listening to and watching the New York Philharmonic pay tribute to the victims of 9-11. When all is said and done, music is the perfect medium to stir up memories and at the same time the resolve to put those memories to constructive use. "All that has perished must rise again."
Bravo, Allan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic and thank you WVIZ!
