Ned Rorem in USA - 18 December, 1988

from Lies: A Diary 1986-1999, page 143:

Expensive documentary on Elliott Carter on Channel 13, which, if nothing else, gets an "A" for arrogance... Meanwhile, as soundtrack substance, the producers erred in featuring Shostakovich's actual movie music, since it fared so much better than E.C.'s.
