James Holmes et al. in martha's vineyard - 28 July, 1989

from Lies: A Diary 1986-1999, page 173:

We listen to Wuorinen's Piano Concerto, over-long and non-reflective, aggresive, even mean. But it's something. After the clattering first movement JH says, "It's music that says: 'No one's going to call me a fairy.'"
