My last appointment at work arrived 45 minutes late. I was miffed until it turned out that my interlocutor was a pianist and piano teacher. Favorite composers? Claude Bolling, Mozart, Rachmaninoff. Bolling, the pianist told me, played some of his own compositions too fast and elided the beauty of the harmonies. We spoke of Rachmaninoff's enormous hands. I wanted to mention his delicate touch, but the moment passed.

-- Rachmaninoff's hands
