Late Beethoven Fugues on West 86th Street
Late Beethoven fugues are strong boys wanting to and going in and girls wanting to be wanted following running up the stairs and the girls dashing in and rushing up the stairs to keep a distance between them and the boys who dash in and rush up the stairs after them not knowing wanting or the chase just flitting like bees to the next shiny buttercup no more deliberate than unavoidable and a third wave of boys wanting to and going in and girls wanting to be wanted following running up the stairs. That’s what was going on on West 86th Street last Sunday. The May flowers were pollinating little accelerandos all over the place. You can’t shape better Old Ludwig Van than that. Old Ludwig Van Old Ludwig Van Old Ludwig Van Vaan Vaaan!
