For the past two days, a battery-powered radio has been the only connection to the outside world for many New Yorkers. And for many of them, music, particularly classical music, offered a brief respite from the confusion outside. Here's a tweet directed at New York Public Radio's classical station, WQXR:
Just listened to Appalachian Spring on @wqxrclassical. I don't think I've appreciated this piece enough in the past. It's beautiful.— Elena V (@amariselv) May 13, 2012
