David Diamond et al. in New York City - 13 November, 1972

from The Later Diaries of Ned Rorem 1961-1972, page 424:

Earlier that day, because David Diamond's Piano Quintet was to be premiered elsewhere the same evening, I attended a rehearsal with him. The piece is sturdy, businesslike, adroit, expertly "telling" for the instruments, not too poetic, but healthy, like David himself whom I hadn't seen since his last return from Italy.
