Cyberspace asides on the making of music
I recall an anecdote about Bernstein and Jascha Heifetz rehearsing something.Bernstein said: "Hey Jasch! What tempo do we want for the beginning?"Heifetz visibly bristled and said: "MISTER Bernstein, YOU will follow ME!"
Wonderful! As you know, I am making my way through the Walsh biography, and I am listening to the pieces as he mentions them. This is illuminating about Sacre, because I did not sense that connection to Scriabin. I'll have to check out the Fifth Sonata now!
