Ned Rorem in Pittsburgh - 13 January, 1985

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 530:

Premiere of An American Oratorio last week in Pittsburg. The divergent reviews, because they contrast rather than mesh, teach me nothing. (Critics, wise or dumb, kind or mean, have never been on the receiving end, yet Apone continues to chastise me because I commemorated him in a book.)
