I don't want to take the wind out of grumpy former Sydney Opera House press officer Ava Hubble's sails -- or orange segments as the case may be with Jorn Utzon's masterpiece at Bennelong Point.

But after her peevish rant about me (and Fairfax) yesterday that our 1992 interview with Utzon in Mallorca wasn't his first with the Australian media since he left the country -- because she pre-dated it -- I noticed a link to a blurb puffing the book Hubble wrote about the British composer Eugene Goossens.
