That evening I débuted in Madeleine's territory as a récitant. Donald Pippin had arranged a balanced program at the Old Spaghetti Factory on Green Street. First a Lully Suite for eight instruments. Then my Lovers, narrative in ten scenes for harpsichord, oboe, cello, vibraphone and tom-toms. Followed by Lou Harrison's Jeptha's Daughters with Robert Duncan declaiming. Finally Façade, deliciously conducted by Hughes, with Lou and me as speakers. This was possibly its most amusing American performance, Lou's timbre being squeaky, mine low-pitched and both our dictions impeccable. But we had too much fun performing - the audience was left out. Should only be done by the English.
