On page 8, Henry plays a disk by one of his former students. Here's how Will's conversation goes:
The first movement ended, and Henry asked me what I thought of her playing.Will doesn't seem willing (no pun intended but I'll take it) to offer much of an opinion. Is he intimidated by Henry or is this just a natural reticence on his part? Note he changes the subject pretty fast. That shows that he has some skills to use in his jousting with Henry. Or at least this is the way that later Will portrays his earlier self.
'Nice' I said.
Henry frowned. 'Did you not perceive the marvelous facility of the left hand? The strength in the bow arm? The secure technique and rich tone?'
'It was beautiful.'
'Remarkable is what it is,' he said. 'Even for someone at the highet level.'
'How's she doing now?' I said.
What do you think about this? I'd like to know. Come post a comment.
