One of the joys I had when I was curator of the Fleisher Collection—and we are coming up on 10 years since that was true—was to get to know some of the composers who had music there. I would meet them if they lived in or around Philadelphia, and seeing them in the Free Library, where the Collection is housed, or having lunch with them, was always a delight. Sometimes I knew them only by phone if they lived far away, or by email or by letter, back in those ancient days when we used to write letters.
