Insults of Note
Not a letter but in fitting company - Sir Thomas Beecham.
"Have you heard any Stockhausen?" Beecham was asked. "No, but I believe I have stepped in some."
Ah, memories of student recitals. The first, a piano student whose enthusiasm exceeded his ability, “My goodness. Such “INTERESTING” repertoire.” The second, a vocal recital that probably should have waited for a few more rehearsals, “Oh S___n! What a lovely dress.”
What a terrific little collection you bring us today! As always, thanks!
