Ned Rorem - between May, 1951 and July, 1951
from The Paris Diary: Hyères July, 1951, page 33:
Evenings here we play four-hand music, the Epigraphs antiques - or I play the phonograph: my skilful string quartet, or old Ella Fitzgerald records which remind me of Olga and the summer iciness of Lake Michigan where I first learned what an orgasm was.
