Description

After his death, Pergolesi’s fame was so great that the demand for his works could not be met. This ultimately led to unscrupulous publishers assigning his name to other musicians’ work. For this reason a curious phenomenon took place whereby the proliferation of lots of apocryphal works feuled Pergolesi’s fame until the present day. One example is the edition of ‘Amici della musica da camera’ (Rome, 1939-1942) which was incorrectly identified by conductors, performers and critics. From this edition many of the works became key parts of the keyboard repertoire but owe their notoriety to Pergolesi’s myth, without which they would probably have been unknown or disregarded today. They are not works by Pergolesi but are testimonials of his success.
