Four Parodies by Gabriello Puliti and the Question of Masses in Istria in the First Half of the 17th Century

  • Ivano Cavallini

Abstract

The paper considers two aspects of the history of music of Istria which can be noted towards the end of the first half of the 17th century. First of all it is evident that G. Puliti was highly personal in his approach to parody technique, in which there was a certain tendency toward variation principles. That was a characteristic feature of a number of other more eminent composers of that period as well. The author also points out Puliti's intellectual superiority, as the composer was anxious to experiment not only with parody but also with modern Baroque compositions despite unfavourable economic conditions, which compelled artists of this region to write pieces of music for a wider audience.
