Ned Rorem in Oberlin - 14 March, 1982

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 349:

The plane was met by three student composer, cute ones (one female, two male), with whom I dined then was whisked to a concert and a post concert party for Simon Rattle - extrovertedly sensitive as ever and looking like Peter Maxwell Davies - who led the Cleveland Orchestra in Mahler's Tenth.
