The contrapuntal implications of this difficult fugue are amazingly complex (see the entrance of the subject in inversion in bar 32, signaled by the words “entra la fuga al roverso). The second major figure in the development of the partimento was Alessandro Scarlatti, who has often been referred to as the founder of the so-called Neapolitan School. The partimentorelated output of Scarlatti is relatively small, though high in quality, and consists of some miscellaneous manuscripts, or zibaldoni.
Some of the more renowned Neapolitan composers studied at Sant’Onofrio, including Nicola Fago, Nicola Porpora, Francesco Feo, Leonardo Leo, Francesco Durante, Carlo Cotumacci, and Giacomo Insanguine. Among the most important of the later generation of students were Niccolò Jommelli, Niccolò Piccinni, and Giovanni Paisiello. 33 In 1795 the last primo maestro, Insanguine, died, and two years later Sant’Onofrio merged with Santa Maria di Loreto. Sant’Onofrio was located on the northern side of Castel Capuano, on the corner with the Via Carbonara.
After Scarlatti, many other remarkable musicians taught at Santa Maria di Loreto: Gaetano Veneziano (primo maestro, 1695–1716), Francesco Mancini (primo maestro, 1720–1735), and Giovanni Veneziano (secondo maestro, 1716–1742). But when the governors again decided in 1739 to hire the famous opera composer Nicola Porpora, the problem arose once more. 27 In 1742 the position was offered to a musician who had never attempted an operatic career but nevertheless had gained immense fame in Europe as the greatest “harmonist” and teacher of his time, Francesco Durante.
