Ned Rorem in New York - 8 April, 1983

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 397:

Today at four I visited Madame Bouboulidi on West 58th to run through the Concerto on two pianos. I was praying she'd be a monument of technique with no feeling. Alas, she was all feeling with no technique. The fast movements were each a third slower than indicated in the score.
