Notes to WIMA’s edition of
La Serva Padrona
La Serva Padrona
(The Maid-Mistress) was composed by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi
(1710-1736) as an
for his opera seria
Il Prigioniero Superbo
Its two parts
intermezzo primo
intermezzo secondo
) were inserted between the three acts of
, as “a little light relief for the audience that had to endure so much hatred
and passion between the battlefields and the dungeons” of the opera (Helmut Reinold).
Il Prigioniero Superbo
, premiered in September 1733, was a failure. On the other hand,
La Serva Padrona
–eventually represented separately from the opera–
was “received
favorably in Italy and hysterically abroad” (Richard Crocker).
features the old bachelor Uberto and his maidservant Serpina.
Although they are constantly at odd with each other, Serpina eventually persuades
Uberto to marry her and becomes the home’s mistress. Vespone, another servant of
Uberto’s, is a
character but plays a crucial role in the plot. The score is simple but
very effective. It is written for a string quartet where, most of the time, second violins
double first violins, and violas double the bass one octave higher.
of the 1804-1805 Paris edition
The present edition at WIMA is based on a printing of
La Serva Padrona
by Auguste
Le Duc, appeared in Paris in 1804 or 1805. It is presumably based on the first,
extremely successful Parisian performance, in 1752. A public-domain version of this
printing is available in pdf format at the digital music library of the University of North
In the transcription, only some evident mistakes and typos have been corrected in the
music, typically, regarding accidentals and a few obviously missing dynamical
markings. Otherwise, the printed version of the music was left unchanged. On the other
hand, the lyrics in the printing is sometimes unclear, and capitalization and punctuation
are not self-consistent. Therefore, the lyrics in the transcription was adapted from a
version of the
included in the booklet of a recorded CD version by Deutsche
Harmonia Mundi (RD77184).
The transcription includes midi files for the arias and
, as well as separate scores
for each instrumental part.
