Thread Name: Are most composers smokers?
Subject: RE: Are most composers smokers?
That's been my experience, too, Joe.

My brother smoked a pipe, a long time ago, but most of his composing: three symphonies, three piano concertos, concerto grosso, symphonic tone poem, an opera and various other piano works were all done without any nicotine of any kind. I'll have to ask him about Roy Harris, the American composer whom he studied with.
