Interim Report

   I have nearly finished reading the recently published mega-biography of Toscanini by Harvey Sachs. I plan to do a piece on it, though certainly not a review. A good article about Toscanini by David Denby can be found in the July 10 and 17 New Yorker, together with a GREAT picture of the conductor. Stay tuned.
   Nor do I think that I’ll do any writing during the next few days. Mark (son) will be my welcome visitor  tomorrow, staying a few days. We will spend our time talking and eating and maybe go to a museum—if it’s of interest to him. Daughter Ellie is out of town and so are the grandchildren—who are children no more. When that visit is over I’ll try to post more interesting stuff.
