from Lies: A Diary 1986-1999, page 52:
Telecast of Gian Carlo Menotti's Goya. A fortnight ago review of the Washington première were so vile I sent him a condolence plus a copy of of a ten-year-old letter (never mailed but printed nevertheless in An Absolute Gift, which he doubtless never read) to Donal Henahan, who had publicly chastised the composer without granting him any benefit of doubt.
