Giovanni Battista Pergolesi

Giovanni Battista Pergolesi: Instrumental Music
Instrumental Music. Marvin E. Paymer (Editor). Pendragon Press. 1993. ISBN 0945193467 (hardcover).
It is not surprising, considering Pergolesi's extraordinary posthumous fame and the demand for his music in the latter half of the eighteenth century, that most of the instrumental works published and performed at the time under his name were by other composers and written after his death. Actually, only 5 of 63 independent instrumental attributions are undoubtedly authentic, and they are presented here: Sinfonia a Violoncello Solo (F major); Sonata [harpsichord] (A major); Sonata per organo (F major); Sonata di Violino e Basso (G major); and Concerto di Violino Solo con piú Strumenti (B-flat major). The introduction lists all instrumental works, including spurious and doubtful ones, as well as adaptations.
