  1. First of all, I believe anyone with internet can hear this broadcast through the radio station website.
    Second, I can’t emphasize enough how important I believe this work to be. Thanks to varied NPR member station broadcast schedules, I was able to hear the Los Angeles concert about a dozen times through streaming audio. In my opinion, this work is the greatest piece PG has written and may be the greatest piece ever written in occidental style. Don’t miss it!!!

  2. Isn’t placing Allen and Glass together in the same room monitored by some regulatory agency?
    I mean, two geniuses like that together may precipitate a chain reaction or something; an uncontrollably huge explosion of wit and musical flights of fancy that can probably be measured in mega tonnage.
    I only wish I were there, at ground zero, to witness the event.
