I found this fragment in July 2006 in the astounding album kept by the oboist Leopold Ganz. At the time,  my interest in Ole Bull was just beginning, so I forgot that I had copied it out, alongside entries from Clara Schumann, Ede Remenyi, Ernst, and Nicolas Mori. But now it has surfaced from the chaos of that day’s note taking.

The chaos of my notebook page (July 2006 NYC) where this tiny scrap of material surfaced.
