Her request for a piano concerto came just as my beloved Cynthia Price made a gift to me of a telescope. As I beheld the Double Cluster in Perseus for the first time, I felt a complex array of thoughts and emotions&mdash;gratitude to Cynthia, amazement at the stars, kinship with all who have stared at the stars, and other sensations which don't lend themselves to words. In my imagination, I saw Dr. Chuang's hands reaching out across 7600 light-years, one hand on each of the star clusters, wringing from them a mysterious music of tone clusters.&rdquo;</p> <p>&bdquo;<i>Gloria Chuangov prosazuje a provd m dlo na tYech kontinentech. Jej pYn, abych napsal klavrn koncert, pYialo ve stejnou dobu, kdy jsem od sv drah Cyntie Priceov dostal dalekohled. Kdy~ jsem poprv uvidl Dvojitou hvzdokupu (Double cluster) v souhvzd Perseus, byl jsem pln emoc a myalenek  vdk Cynthii, ~as nad hvzdami, pocit sounle~itosti se vaemi, kteY v tu chvli sledovali ty stejn hvzdy a dalach nepopsatelnch pocito. V mch pYedstavch jsem vidl ruce Glorie Chuangov, nata~en napY  7600 svtelnmi lety.

It begins as soon as we look at the sun and moon, and start trying to understand what we see, checking our understanding against reality.
