Memory and Music


Saturday, September 06, 2003

In classical music, the music can give us the grandeur and gravity we crave, and the words can bring it down to earth, closer to the specifics of what we're trying to recall. Sara Fishko looks at memory, music and the art of capturing a profound moment in time.

Thanks to the Ravinia Festival for the recording of Ned Rorem's Aftermath.
