Ned Rorem in Steinway & Sons - 4 January, 1973

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 1:

To Steinway's basement for first rehearsal of Night Music with Ann Schein and Earl Carlyss, my ugliest piece, and very effective, at least as they played it. An hour earlier, visit to Dr. Schreiber (Mother's proctologist) for the aches of twenty years, aches that fade at the violin's sound.
