The composer prepares to work:<br />
An electrical charge fills the air.... In the doorway a man appears....White doves fly into the air and then disappear into the ether. He walks with the staccato of heels hitting the marble floor.... Upon reaching the Baby Grand he flips up his coat tails and perches on the bench....raising his hands with his palms facing the keys he splays his fingers..... for a moment time stands still.....
