    The old daze with the NYP. Bernstein gives an introduction to the piece and welcomes the soloist, Stanley Drucker. Drucker joined the NYP at age 19, and played over 10,000 concerts in his lengthy career.

    I have spent the afternoon watching Philo Bregstein's Documentary 'Otto Klemperer's Long Journey Through His Times' and the extra interviews with Pierre Boulez and Ernst Bloch from 1972. It is really fascinating.
    Any truth is better than indefinite doubt.

    I heard Arrau do a Schumann Symphonic Etudes live in NYC and it was EPIC!
    When you don't know what you're saying, you take a long time to say it. When you know what you're saying, you get pithy.
