Ned Rorem in New York - 20 September, 1981

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 330:

Roger Englander stopped by for an early snack, then to the Bernstein-conducts-Stravinsky concert. Bowled over by Lenny's and Michael Tilson Thomas's four-hand rendition of Sacre, the very epitome of glamour, yet a glamour that didn't interfere with the score's vicious integrity.
