2nd Anniversary. Remembrance: Mr. Marvin Hamlisch

Remembrance. Louise Blandon wrote in 2012, after the passing of Marvin Hamlisch:
“Sixty-eight years ago at birth, presaging their genius son’s enormous talent and success, Marv Hamlisch’s parents got his name right.

Marvin Hamlisch (1944-2012)

Marvin Hamlisch (1944-2012)

Understatedly elegant and refined, soft-spoken and brilliant, Marvin Hamlisch, much like the equally-beloved Leonard Bernstein, earns the revered accolade and rich tapestry underlying the Yiddish word “MENSCH.”

And like the cheers that erupted recently in the Control Room of the Pasadena Jet Propulsion Laboratory from ebullient engineers who landed NASA’s Curiosity on Mars, so too, the whole world will pump its fists in the air, and whoop, and holler, and weep every time the genius of Marvelous Hamlisch embraces our tender hearts and souls. Rest well, Marvin. Sincerely, Louise Blandon.”
