James Holmes et al. - 20 April, 1975

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 135:

Visit from Taylor Stoehr and Paul Goodman's biography. Then to Sylvia Marlowe's; she plays us the Goldberg Variations. JH bowled over by the unfussy grandeur of it all. Sylvia knows what she wants and how to get it, and what the hell if some wrong notes fly out the window.
