Misc. Comments

In its original 1737 form, this work probably had more pieces by Auletta, with later productions having fewer. According to Grove Music, Auletta gave "the first production in Naples of his comic opera Orazio. This work, which was extremely popular, had a long subsequent history; it was continually modified as it was performed in city after city and quickly turned into a pasticcio. In that form it was sometimes ascribed to Auletta and sometimes to other composers. One famous production, a much-shortened version of the original Orazio, took place in Paris in 1752 under the title Il maestro di musica. The score printed in Paris in 1753 attributed the music to Pergolesi, but in fact it was by several composers including Auletta, who was represented by four items from his original opera. As a pasticcio it was also known as Le maître de musique, La scolara alla moda, and perhaps El maestro de capilla. An anonymous Impresario abbandonato (D-Dl) is identified in the library catalogue as a revised version of Orazio and was probably performed at Munich in 1749 and 1758."
