James Holmes et al. in Avery Fisher Hall - 29 November, 1988

from Lies: A Diary 1986-1999, page 140:

JH and I attended his Avery Fisher recital three weeks ago [Gidon Kremer]. His diffiedent intellectual smallish tone was disconcerting. His female 'assisting artist' in Berio's Sequenza seemd solider in heft and presence than Kremer.
