Ned Rorem in Atlanta - 31 October, 1985

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 600:

[Robert] Shaw led the world premiere of my String Symphony in such a way that, although future performances by others may be different and even as good as, none will ever be better than. (I kissed him onstage, which flustered him.)
