A young lady of four or so indicates over the phone matters of relative importance:  Call back later. I am listening to Mahler.
After who knows how long, I revisited Maurizio Pollini’s recording of Stravinsky’s Trois mouvements de Pétrouchka and the Prokofiev Seventh Sonata. An absolutely electrical brilliance.
Peering ahead to two days off, in order to catch up on some composing.
And realizing that it were high time I fetched in recordings of Charles Wuorinen’s Second and Third String Quartets.
