Many Tributaries, Just One Pierian Spring

Yesterday I mentioned that suggestion that Galton and Simpson influenced Pinter. Continuing the theme of cultural cross-pollination, Radio 4 ran a programme this morning (Composing LA) on Schoenberg and Stravinsky in Los Angeles. In short, no Caretaker without Hancock; no shower scene from Psycho without The Rite of Spring.

E pluribus unum, et vice versa. You know it makes sense.
