Pergolesi Giovanni Battista

Giovanni Battista Pergolesi (1710-1736) was an Italian violinist, organist and composer who throughout his short life (he died of tuberculosis at the age of 26) became famous for his intermezzo from the opera "La Serva Padrona" (The Maid Turned Mistress) and his sacred music work "Stabat mater".

Pergolesi’s family name was Draghi but since his family came to Jesi from Pergola, municipality of Marche region, his family was called Pergolesi by locals. This name stuck even when young Giovanni continued his studies at the Naples Conservatory.

Pergolesi is regarded as one of the most important composers of comic opera (opera buffa). His operas, performed 16 years after his death in Paris, created so-called “quarrel of the comic actors” (Querelle des Bouffons) in 1752. The quarrel between supporters of French opera tradition then represented by J.B.Lully and J.P.Rameau and Italian comic opera fans represented by music of G.B.Pergolesi lasted for two years.
