James Holmes et al. in New York - 12 February, 1982

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 346:

This morning, first rehearsal of Winter Pages (at least, the first to which I was invited, and I brought JH) seemed rough. But this afternoon on the stage things went smoother. Each of the five players - Gervase De Peyer (clarinet), Loren Glickman (bassoon), Jamie Buswell (violin), Leslie Parnas (cello), and Charles Wadsworth (piano) - is separately super, but they know how to meld, too, like a deck of cards, or rather like frantic amoebas.
