Ned Rorem in Paris - between in the beginning of 1952 and in the middle of 1952

from The Paris Diary: Paris 1952, page 94:

... Later went to Julius' to hear him do my sonata before he records it for Decca next week. I don't like the work much anymore and would not have the nerve to write it today. But Henri found it "très bien, qu’elle coulait comme un chapelet entre les doigts."
