Sorabji in a letter describing the completion of the Opus Clavicembalisticum

With a wracking head and literally my whole body shaking as with ague I write this and tell you I have just this afternoon early finished Clavicembalisticum… The closing 4 pages are so cataclysmic and catastrophic as anything I’ve ever done - the harmony bites like nitric acid - the counterpoint grinds like the mills of God. — Kaikhosru Shapurji Sorabji
