Abstract

The contribution highlights as in the epistolary correspondence regarding vices and virtues of ancient and modern music between Pietro Metastasio and Saverio Mattei there is the resurfacing of cross-references and allusions to themes and reflections contained in the pseudo-Plutarchean De musica. Also in the 18th century musical debate, the treatise attributed to Plutarch seems to play a major role, as already happened earlier during the Humanism. [http://www.jstor.org/stable/23347448]
