What did Vedran Smajlović play in Sarajevo?
Vedran Smajlović played for 22 days - one day for each of those killed - Smajlović
played at the same spot. Every evening after that, at 4 P.M., the time of the
fatal explosion, the 37-year-old cellist, dressed formally as if for a concert
performance, took his cello to the site of the crater created by the bomb. And
there he would play one of his favorite pieces, Albinoni's "Adagio in G
minor."(from Sunday's Sermon)
