The LA Times headline for 89-year-old composer David Diamond’s obit says he was known for his “Variety of Styles, Fiery Temperament.” Bad tempered, in other words. He wrote 12 symphonies, 52 preludes and fugues, and 11 string quartets. But he once punched conductor Artur Rodzinski in the face because the maestro wouldn’t let him attend rehearsals. No less than Leonard Bernstein and Aaron Copland raised money to get Diamond into psychoanalysis. Diamond died of heart failure on Monday at his home in New York.
