Petrucci's Repertoire and Its Sources

Petrucci's Repertoire and Its Sources

(p.265) Chapter Nine Petrucci's Repertoire and Its Sources
Ottaviano Petrucci

Stanley Boorman

Oxford University Press

This chapter is about repertorial matters, revealing Ottaviano Petrucci's attempts to supply content that would also appeal. The bulk of this chapter is concerned with the immediate stimuli for Petrucci's books—patronage, outside events, or individual promotion, while a final brief section looks at the contents of the books as epitomes of public taste. The chapter attempts to draw Petrucci's picture of his musical market, as he made his business decisions. These issues of choice and market are important, for they were the factors which caused Petrucci to publish music at all, and to select specific repertoires. Much of the rest of this chapter attempts to view Petrucci's output as a series of decisions, about repertoire and about market.
