This is one of the most awesome stories I have ever heard about, it deserves a book and movie along with this music. I never really thought the TSO was my cup of tea, but after reading about the giant story of this giant man and his love for humanity and his city, it has sucked me in to the fold of TSO fans! I served in the Bosnian conflict and used to volunteer to drive vehicles to Sarajevo as security for higher ranking officers. I saw what it looked like after the shelling ceased.

Some time later, a reporter traced him down to ask why he did this insanely stupid thing. The old man said that it was his way of proving that despite all evidence to the contrary, the spirit of humanity was still alive in t

At that time, Serbs were shelling Sarajevo every night. Rather than head for the bomb shelters like his family and neighbors, this man went to the town square, climbed onto a pile of rubble that had once been the fountain, took out his cello, and played Mozart and Beethoven as the city was bombed.

... We heard about this cello player born in Sarajevo many years ago who left when he was fairly young to go on to become a well-respect e d musician, playing with various symphonies throughout Europe. Many decades later, he returned to Sarajevo as an elderly man—at the height of the Bosnian War, only to find his city in complete ruins.

I think what most broke this man's heart was that the destruction was not done by some outside invader or natural disaster—it was done by his own people. At that
