you've got to be revisionistic

Darcy's link to a post on composition revision on the great inspirations blog (the posts are long and few and far between, but all extremely worthwhile: it's like letter-writing versus email-typing) can be completed by one of DJA's own on help received from Maria Schneider and undermining "the illusion of the Brilliant Masterwork bursting fully-formed from the composer's brow."


Phil has some reservations, but I like the NY Times Magazine's Sunn0)))/Boris article a lot. Zoilus, typically, breaks it down nicely.
