Ned Rorem in Nantucket - 11 January, 1987

from Lies: A Diary 1986-1999, pages 61-62:

Bill Bolcom's Violin Concerto, meanwhile (on last Sinday's Jan. 11 ACO concert), seems a Jewish Ives. Upon the Yankee morass of Ives's canvas a clean hymn tune is limned. On the Yankee morass of Bolcom's canvas are limned augmented seconds and little glisses.
