Program note.
I met Ron Musto and Eileen Gardner at the American Academy in Rome during my Rome Prize Fellowship year, 1986-87. We hit it off immediately, discovering that we are foodies, with a bias toward il cibo italiano!!! Since then we have stayed in touch back here in the States. Whenever my wife and I visit New York City, we stay in their lovely apartment on Roosevelt Island, which has a gorgeous, panoramic view of Manhattan. We would invite our AAR alumni friends over and cook a feast for the guests.

A couple of years ago, they gave me a copy of Gaspara Stampa, a publication from their own Italica Press. I immediately fell in love with Stampa’s poems. There is basically one single topic among the 312-odd poems, my favorite subject in Art: unrequited love.

Gaspara Stampa is a musical setting of five of her poems or Rime.

1. Rima I    
Interlude 1
2. Rima V
3. Rima XXVI  
Interlude 2
4. Rima XXXIV
5. Rima XLIII
