The instrument, the song

     "Which came first," always
     sounds so obvious, until I
     see the provenance in each
     variable. Almost every re-
     cording of Beethoven quar-
     tets uses strings borrowed
     from priceless collections.

     Almost everyone is touched
     by the audible discrepancy
     between his heart and some
     one else's, the instrument.

     More than whose is better,
     this is why one plays, and
     how one's called to listen.
