Sticking to it and the bumpy road to success

A young American read some of this poetry to Gertrude Stein and was told by the formidable woman "to give up writing completely". She dubbed him the manufactured savage. He caught up with Aaron Copland and after some lessons was told that he was "militantly non-professional", but Paul Bowles didn't give up and succeeded in both disciplines. Also hear piano music from a dramatist who, after a long gestation period, eventually created giant operas! On the Piano his Sunday more musicians who divided their time between different art forms.

The Piano can be heard this Sunday afternoon at 5 on KPAC and KTXI.
