Star Light, Star Bright

"That [Dumbarton Oaks] was written in 1937-38, 20 years ago, like the light of a star hitting the earth after 20 light-years. But the starlight does arrive. Can you imagine the loneliness of the man who invents something new and does not live to see the time when the light arrives?"
[From a conversation Ingolf Dahl had with Igor Stravinsky on December 9, 1957]

I played the Dumbarton Concerto in an orchestra with Stravinsky conducting at a concert in Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, DC. Francis Tursi was my stand-partner - must have been in the 1960s.
