A note from an audience member after the concert:

Thank you for the fine concert at the Chelsea. The program was particularly interesting because it included so many lesser known women composers. It was sad to read about Clara Faisst's belongings going out to the curb. Well do I know what that means, for three Estonian families in New York, my good friends, ended up this way and I had to help carry the stuff...
As to the encore, "The Swan" (by Saint-Saens), many have a mental picture associated with that lovely tune. Mine stems from my college days inColorado in the early '50s. I worked at a youth camp high in the mountains, above 9000'. One night, we decided to drive to a nearby promontory - a clearing almost at the timberline. The night was gorgeous - clear, cold, but no wind, and a full moon. As we sat there, enjoying the utter peace and quiet, and having a good time, the melody of "The Swan" kept going round and round in my head. Ever since, when I hear the piece, I am transferred back in time to that lovely night scene long, long ago.
