The Inganno Technique in Ostinato Forms of the Early Renaissance
In domestic and foreign studies, the inganno technique is usually associated with Italian music of the late Renaissance (from the 50s of the 16th century) and early Baroque; often with imitation forms. The focus of this study is shifted to an earlier period: the end of the 15th—the first half of the 16th century. The analyzed material is ostinato forms, which, due to the repetition of theme, are fruitful for inganno transformations of soggetto. The geographical affiliation of the considered works also varies; in addition to the Italian one, samples of the Dutch and French musical cultures were studied. Special attention is paid to the tradition of soggetto cavato. The transcription of Agnus Dei I from the mass “La sol mi fa re” by Robert de Fevin is published as an Appendix, where the inganno exists only nominally, representing the original sample of “music for the eyes”.
