Ned Rorem in Nantucket - 25 May, 1987

from Lies: A Diary 1986-1999, page 87:

Documentary on Horowitz, 'l'idiot savant du clavier', whose Mozart (the C-major Sonata I used to play with Belle Tannenbaum) I would have found vulgar forty years ago, but now find aptly rhapsodic, novel, Landowska-like.
