I used to work near the World Trade Center. After getting home from Ground Zero on 9/11 I was shell-shocked like everyone who was there. Music seemed the furthest thing from my mind. But after many hours I settled in, turned off the TV and put on the 2nd movement, Andante, of Nicolo Paganini's Violin Concerto #5, played by Salvatore Accardo with the London Philharmonic, recorded 1975. It seemed to sum up the tragedy of the day and still does for me.
