14 Nations Combine in Peace Day Tribute: “String Quartet No. 3, VI. Closing” by Philip Glass

Il #Covid19 ci ha costretto alla distanza ma attraverso la musica ci siamo sentiti vicini ed uniti.
Oggi, in occasione della #giornatainternazionaledellaPace, vogliamo lanciare un messaggio in grado di trascendere ogni differenza e trasmettere un sentimento condiviso di unità e amicizia.
Da un’idea della US Air Force Band è nato questo arrangiamento, di una composizione di Philip Glass, a cui ha partecipato anche un appartenente alla Banda Musicale della Polizia di Stato. #essercisempre #lamiciziaèunacosaseria #culturaperlalegalità #distantimauniti #dallastessaparte
14 NATIONS | During the early stages of the quarantine, the global community was faced with a great challenge: How can we stay connected? We all searched for ways to overcome our isolation and to create new avenues of human interaction. The United States Air Force Band has uniquely harnessed the power of music throughout this time to unite people of diverse backgrounds, cultures, and languages. This project represents an extraordinary international collaboration featuring 21 saxophonists from 14 countries!

“String Quartet No. 3, VI. Closing,” composed by Philip Glass and arranged for saxophones by Nathan Nabb, perfectly captures the zeitgeist of the times: at first meditative and struggling, it turns toward hopefulness and finally resolution. Master Sgt. Jeremy Koch, principal saxophonist of the Concert Band, reached out to our partner organizations worldwide. We were overwhelmed by a shared willingness to contribute. Twenty of the participants are military musicians from around the globe, and one is from the National Police Wind Band in Rome, Italy! How cool is that?!

Today also happens to be the United Nation’s International Day of Peace, which provides its own call to humanity to set aside differences and contribute to a global shared culture of togetherness. This is but one example of what cooperation can look like, and how the universal language of music provides a mechanism for us all to reconnect.
