Looking up

"He had moved back to Angers, since Paris was threatened by Zeppelin attacks..." -- Jean Barraqué, Debussy

"(Schoenberg) was a lovely and delicate man, very nervous when airplanes flew over U.C.L.A.; who once hushed us, too, in order to hear a bird outside." -- Lou Harrison, introduction to his Suite for Piano
