painting of a female cellist on stage THE CELLIST


by Galway Kinnell

At intermission I find
her backstage still practicing
the piece coming up next.
She calls it the
"solo in high dreary."
Her bow niggles at
the string like a hand
stroking skin it never
wanted to touch.
Probably under her scorn
she is sick
that she can't do better by it...

    The complete poem by Galway Kinnell

  • THE CELLIST

    This is a wonderful and true story of how one man, in this case a cellist, can make a difference. "Middle-aged, longish hair, great bushy mustache. He is dressed in formal evening clothes. Sitting in a cafe chair in the middle of a street. In front of a bakery where mortar fire struck a breadline in late May, killing twenty-two people. He is playing his cello. As a member of the Sarajevo Opera Orchestra, there is little he can do about hate and war -- it has been going on in Sarajevo for centuries. Even so, every day for twenty-two days he has braved sniper and artillery fire to play Albinoni's profoundly moving Adagio in G Minor."
