9/11, in memoriam

Here are links to some of the extensive coverage on events relating to commemorations of the 9/11 attacks.

I appeared on NPR’s Weekend All Things Considered, talking to Guy Raz about music and commemoration (pursuant to my related articles in the Washington Post.)

Paul Farhi covered the Kennedy Center’s commemorative concert last week in the Washington Post.

Joe Banno reviewed the Brahms Requiem at the start of the National Cathedral’s weekend of commemoration.

And reviews are starting to come in of “Heart of a Soldier,” Christopher Theofanidis’s 9/11 opera that had its world premiere in San Francisco on Saturday night. On NPR, Tom Huizenga talked to the composer about the work. But the critical consensus so far is pretty unanimous. In the San Francisco Chronicle, Joshua Kosman found the opera failed to fulfil its promise. In the Los Angeles Times, Mark Swed asked if criticism were relevant to this 9/11 memorial. In the New York Times, Zachary Woolfe said it lacked spark. The blog OutWestArts also found it came up short.

A preview video of San Francisco Opera’s 9/11 work “Heart of a Soldier,” which had its world premiere on Saturday and runs through Sept. 30.
