Salesmanship

6 May 2016 /
Johann Sebastian Bach

“How many pieces are you playing at the piano recital?”

“Two,” I reply, “but one is very short.”

“Who are the composers?”

“Bach and Liszt.”

“What is that? ‘Box’?”

“Why do you ask me who the composers are if you’ve never heard of Bach?”

“That’s salesmanship.” Did I mention he’s a salesman? “You’ve gotta push it.”

    Oh, and by the way, those two composers are just like Rogers and Hammerstein. They collaborated!
