July 26, birthday of Ada Gentile

Ada Gentile is an Italian pianist and composer (Wikipedia).  She was educated at the St. Cecilia Conservatory of Music in Rome, where she later became deputy director. As I’ve written before,  St. Cecilia church is where Respighi was music master.  It sits atop the ruins of an ancient Roman necropolis and house.
