EN
In 27 of his concertos Tartini used 39 poetical mottos taken mostly from opera or cantata librettos. Up to now there have been discovered text concordances for 20 mottos, but not all of them can be established with one-hundred percent certainty. This article adds 16 new concordances, discusses probable functions of the mottos and the nature of the sources from which the composer drew them, as well as the varying degrees of certainty regarding these convergences. The author formulate a hypothesis, that the source of Tartini’s literary quotations could be some anthology of arias from operas and cantatas in his possession. Apart from poetic quotations the article compares also the musical layer of some parts of Tartini’s concertos which carry incipits of arias by various authors with the originals, finding examples of subtle similarities. The author postulate to undertake in the future a detailed and wide-ranging research into musical quotations in Tartini’s concertos.
