Ned Rorem in USA - 10 December, 1988

from Lies: A Diary 1986-1999, page 142:

The Atlanta Symphony's recording of my orchestral work prompts this from Kyle Gann in Fanfare: "Rorem's career has been one of continual decline... devoid of soul or backbone." And this from Terry Teachout in High Fidelity; "Rorem has emerged at the age of 65 as quite possibly the best composer we have."
