“The funny part of it all is that you have to come to New York to appreciate the virtues of a small town just as you have to go to college to learn how easily you can do without at B.A.” Dawn Powell, in a letter to her friend Charlotte Johnson, December 6, 1918. (from Selected Letters of Dawn Powell)

Scriabin’s Valse No. 1 in F Minor, played by Stephen Coombs. 

It’s early Scriabin & quite Chopin-ish.  


"Ballet has an insatiable appetite for music and devours everything that comes into its path, and anyone who has tried writing for class will know that music – which can take hours to write – disappears in a matter of seconds. It’s gone. You have to compose some more."

- Pianist and dance accompanist Andy Higgs on Jonathan Still’s blog
