In my creative response to the tragic events of September 11th, it was important to include reference to Samuel BarberÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Adagio For Strings. The Adagio speaks to the very spiritual core of my being Ã¢â‚¬â€œ excruciating in both its beauty and its profound sadness. As I worked on this quilt, I discovered that the Adagio is in fact BarberÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Opus 11 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ hence the title.
