On 27 October 2015, the United Nations held a special event entitled Markings and Music.
Organized in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations and in honour of the late legendary Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld, the event featured Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson and Swedish pianist Per Tengstrand, with music inspired by readings from Hammarskjöld's book Markings of 1963.
