Ned Rorem in New York - 4 November, 1986

from Lies: A Diary 1986-1999, page 43:

Met Russell O. at the Y for Musical Elements program of five new works, of which Robert Beaser's Songs from the Occasions seemed most promising, partly because it resembled my music. It was the only vocal piece, and very damaged. Why must a young American chose six poems by Montale?
