Ned Rorem in New York - 5 March, 1985

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 545:

At Juilliard for first run-through of my Organ Concerto. Leonard has enlisted young Barbagallo as rehearsal pianist, and he plays very nineteenth-centuryishly (left hand always a fraction ahead of the right) which has little (or does it?) to do with my music. Tempos all too fast.
