Ned Rorem in New York - 12 November, 1977

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 200:

On the 12th, visit to Paul Jacobs in his marvellous new apartment on Riverside Drive, he played me Busoni; after which dined tête-à-tête chez Lenny Bernstein and spent the next six hours examining his weird, semi-successful cycle Songfest.
