The discussion of the personality traits and quirks of famous musicians such as
Itzhak Perlman and William Revelli causes me to ask a philosophical question:
To what extent does extraordinary talent permit a person to be (pardon the word)
a jerk? Some people seem to believe that exceptionally-gifted people (in
whatever field) are allowed to be lacking in human sensitivity or social graces,
yet others feel that such people should be held to the same standards of
civility as anyone else. I'd be most interested in hearing the opinions of our
learned clarinetists on this matter of international importance......
