Program notes

I happened to be in Paris during the terror attacks of November 2015. Three days after those horrific incidents, at 12:00PM on November 16, 2015, three minutes of silence was observed all over Europe to honor those victims who lost their precious lives. At that moment, I was at Gare du Nord station. Can you imagine what it was like to witness Paris–the actual place where the unforgettable event occurred!–coming to an absolute standstill? No movement, no noise, and no activity; simply stillness. Those three minutes of stillness will forever be etched in my memory. This work is a musical homage to those who lost their lives that day.
