|Giovanni Battista Pergolesi (1710-1736), list of works|
|Emerging onto the Neapolitan opera scene at the age of eighteen, Giovanni Pergolesi quickly became one of the most popular composers in the region. He died only eight years later, leaving behind several lengthy operas and sacred choral works. Ironically, it was the brief theatrical intermezzo La serva padrona that guaranteed him immortality; in the decades following Pergolesi's death it was used as the model for an entirely new school of operatic composition.|
