Ned Rorem in New York - 3 July, 1987

from Lies: A Diary 1986-1999, page 98:

Annual perusal (quite thorough) of Bruckner's Eighth. From one year to the next I can never recall a note, and I have a good memory; the Symphony always comes to me as something new, if not exactly fresh, and somehow worthless.
