Rest in peace, Avery Fishermain
The hall he endowed for the New York Philharmonic was renamed yesterday.
Avery Fisher, an enthusiastic violinist and electronics millionaire who died in 1994, gave his life for classical music.
David Geffen, a rock mogul, gave $100 million.
That’s why his name is now on the hall.
There is no room for sentiment in arts fundraising.
