Delightful news about Anita! Please give my warmest congratulations and save some for yourself and Otilia. Alejandro Prieto is a lucky boy!
How has everything been with you?
I had a busy winter -- and for a while it looked as if I would be going to Paris to put on an American Music Festival for the OWI in June. But they suddenly changed their minds -- so I went to New Jersey instead. I am staying in a small cottage and working on the Symphony. The slow movement is finished -- but there will be three other movements so the end still seems a long way off.
I read of your concerts in Cal. Any chance of seeing you here before the temporade begins again?
Give my best greetings to the jovenes.
