A young Bernstein

Bernstein at a Tanglewood master class for student conductors (c. 1954). The piece was La Boheme. All the class would sing all the arias, as the student conducted the piano!

When I was at Harvard, there was an alley behind the Coop called Palmer Street (now gentrified). In those days, there was a nook off the alley that led to what had been an old stable. In there was an overstuffed chair, a studio in a mess, a sofa-bed, and Morris Hall Pancoast. He painted on Cape Ann or the North Shore in the summer and wintered, I think, in Palmer Street. Sometimes he would hang a painting on the brick wall of the alley nook. He suffered students like me, who would take up his time but do him no tangible good. In the dim urban light of the nook I never saw his paintings well, and he didn't offer to show them. I had never seen another until today, 46 years later, when I came across this work, luminous yet contrarily entitled "Mother McCary's Chickens." A chicken coop set in colors a sultan would envy. It pleases me, for I remember his crankiness and am now delighted by the evidence of his spirit. Click here for larger.

Woman, Cades Cove, Great Smokies. 1953.

 My friend the late Aiden Lassell Ripley of Lexington painted this watercolor, "The Roller Skaters," my favorite. I bought it in remembrance.
