I'll Heal In Time

Thursday, September 01, 2011

Today is the first of the Radio Rookies series Our 9/11: Growing Up In the Aftermath.  Jillian Suarez’s story is one she says she doesn't want to tell with tears.  Jillian’s father, a New York City police officer, didn't come home on September 11th and for three months her mother held out hope he would be found alive -- until she received a call that his remains had been found.  Now 18 years old, Jillian rarely speaks about the loss she feels.  For this piece, she decided to push through her silence to sit down with some of the closest people in her life, including her mom, to talk about her father’s death and what his absence has meant in her life.

Memorial Music: One Expected, One Not

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

In the days immediately after 9/11, our regular programming on WNYC 93.9 FM was suspended and we were doing wall-to-wall news coverage from NPR’s New York studio in midtown. I had been on the scene that Tuesday morning and was badly shaken by the events; and staying at home with nothing to do was definitely not helping me. So when NPR called to ask if I’d cover a live performance of the Requiem by Gabriel Fauré, and gather some sound from people at the church, I was relieved and grateful.

Larry Ingrassia was part of the team that set up a newsroom within a few hours after the attacks and helped put together the Pulitzer Prize-winning edition of the Wall Street Journal. Mark Hilan helped keep WNYC on the air and brought people news of the events that morning.

Robert Moran on Trinity Requiem

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

When Robert Ridgell (organist at Trinity Wall Street Church in New York) asked me for a new work to be commissioned by Trinity Wall Street and for his wonderful Trinity Youth Chorus, I said "Yes." Then Robert told me that this new work would be part of the 9/11 Anniversary and he would appreciate having a requiem.

White House Issues Guidelines for 9/11 Commemorations

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

The Obama administration has quietly released two sets of guidelines to government officials in the U.S. and abroad on how to commemorate the tenth anniversary 9/11 terrorist attacks. The guidelines seek to remind Americans that many other nations around the globe have faced terrorist attacks of their own in the last 10 years, while underscoring themes of public service and remembrance. The document, which was forwarded to all federal agencies, also highlights what the government has done to prevent another terrorist attack.

We have an idea how to proceed; however, we want to hear your thoughts as to the most appropriate, respectful course of action.

To Score or Not To Score

Monday, August 29, 2011

As part of Q2's Requiem Project, we're collecting stories from the  New York Public Radio archives to augment the music stream — voices that expand upon the themes in the music, and vice versa.  We recently wondered: what if we blended the two?  We've put together a little audio experiment and we'd like you to evaluate the results.

Annie Bergen on Johannes Brahms's German Requiem

Friday, August 26, 2011

The requiem that stands out for me is the performance I heard of Brahms’s Ein Deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem) shortly after the attacks of September 11, 2001. The performance was by the New York Philharmonic under the direction of Kurt Masur at Avery Fisher Hall. A collective feeling of wounded angst could be felt as audience-goers entered the auditorium.
