Recital is tribute to 9/11 victims
AN organ recital at Salisbury Cathedral next month will be a memorial to those who died in the terrorist attacks of September 11.
Timothy Hone will begin his programme, on September 11 at 7.30pm, with Howells’ Third Rhapsody, written in a single surge of inspiration during a bombing raid on York in 1918, followed by Barber’s Adagio for Strings, which became a musical expression of the collective grief in the days following the Twin Towers attacks in 2001.
He will also play Alain’s Trois Danses, completed just before the composer’s premature death in 1940, before finishing with Reubke’s explosive Sonata on the 94th Psalm, considered one of the finest 19thcentury works for the instrument.
John Challenger, assistant director of music at the cathedral, said: “It is hugely appropriate that Tim should commemorate in his recital those who died following the tragic events of September 11, 2001.”
