Ned Rorem in City of Oakland - between late , month unknown, 1967 and early February, 1967

from The Later Diaries of Ned Rorem 1961-1972, pages 209-210:

Robert next morning collected me for the Water Music rehearsal in Oakland. Now this piece was tailor-made for his youth symphony there: a concerto grosso in the form of variations for solo clarinet and violin with small orchestra. The soloists, age seventeen, played liked angelic devils.
