Yesterday, I renamed Arnold Schoenberg, called him Aaron. I must have confused him with a character in one of his stage pieces. It’s fixed now. An attentive reader, Chris Schneider, caught the mistake and sent this charming reprimand.
Geez, and I thought his name was *Moses* Schoenberg …
Anyone who makes a mistake like that deserves to be subjected to the Schoenberg joke in my additional lyrics for “The Wonder of You” (that’s the Ellington/George song of that title, *not* the Elvis one).
I’ve whistled ‘Pierrot Lunaire,”
I’ve jockeyed in the June air;
I’ve moped about in moon air, all blue.
The worlds may fall asunder,
But nothing’s like The Wonder of You.

Having made more than my own share of misnaming typos, I’m full of sympathy.
Thanks. I feel so much better
