Fascinating reading. Ken, JBS, Todd, don't miss it if you haven't read it already.
"Medtner [is] one of  the few oases of the old musical outlook --- when music was music and not a sport; when it still served as the language of expression; when it was permissible and not ridiculous to feel, and to disclose one's feelings" - Leonid Sabaneev

Thanks for heads up.

Anais Nin: Cities of the Interior, Volume 2.



Took the opportunity offered by enforced absence to go through stuff in my gym locker and forgot I had this.

Halfway both:

                                                                                       The authors, Zweig and Roth, both exiled, meeting in the Summer of 1936 in the Belgian seaside resort of Ostende.

… music is not only an 'entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.    RVW, 1948

I thought conservatives were all for public shaming.....
Yes, for example, the Covington school children and the local bakery near Oberlin College.  Those pesky conservatives!  :)
