Note to You, A; Ned Rorem


One of America’s cleverest composers, Rorem has written wonderfully witty music for piano and voice. He has also written marvelous prose, including some absorbing “kiss and tell” diaries about his life with the leading artists of the day. He’s 75 now and we’ll celebrate his career this week on ANTY.
