Ned Rorem in Houston - 2 November, 1986

from Lies: A Diary 1986-1999, page 40:

Rain. As a switch, a late Beethoven quartet is piped through the mikes as we board Continental flight 144 for Newarl, but this music is irksome as the usual rock fare. Who wants any music - even mine, even yours - at such trying moments?
