TRIOMPHI: The Triumphs of Petrarch Expressed in Music

Francesco Petrarca (Petrarch: 1304-1374) was the most influential poet of the Italian Renaissance. His Trionfi, 'triumphs,' is a series of autobiographical poems depicting a succession of allegorical figures, each more powerful than the first.

In this program of 16th century Italian music, Love, Chastity, Death, Fame, Time, and Eternity express their majesty as they vie for mastery, accompanied by stunningly beautiful images from the Beinecke’s medieval manuscript holdings.

LECTURE: 4:30 pm
