From the Czech composer Miroslav Srnka:
Some dreams come true, but you believe it first when you see it with your own eyes. tomorrow the first rehearsal with the musicians of LA Phil and Susanna Mälkki.
The conversation with the immigration officer:
– why do you come to LA?
– for a performance of my music.
– oh! how is your piece called?
– why overheating?
– isn’t the world around us overheating?
– yeah. can I see the score?
