Ned Rorem in Nantucket - 27 September, 1984

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 517:

Listening to the new recording of Bill Schuman's two ballets of the late forties, Judith and Night Journey, and to Elliott Carter's eight-year-old Symphony of Three Orchestras. How radically different these contemporaries. How do I react?Well, there is undeniably more information on Carter, but there is more appeal in the Schuman.
