Photographs Relative to the Première of Concerto for Piano and Orchestra (1982)
1st movement Concerto for Piano, 1st movement

Writer John Habich took to the fact that husband Harold had written his first piano concerto for wife Jane -- and that the world première of the concerto would fall on Valentine's Day, 14 February 1984 -- as if designed by Cupid himself. The Tallahassee Democrat published Habich's article, "Composer's Valentine: Be my pianist," on 14 February 1984 -- right on target. The photo accompanying the article, by Mike Ewen, likewise made the point (and Jane's red blouse didn't hurt anything).
