Metastasio's brother, Leopoldo Trapassi, and his father and sister, were thrown upon their own resources.
As time advanced, the life which Metastasio led at Vienna, together with the climate, told on his health and spirits. From about the year onward he wrote little, though the cantatas which belong to this period, and the canzonetta Ecco quel fiero istante, which he sent to his friend Farinelli, rank among the most popular of his productions.
It was clear, as Vernon Lee has phrased it, that "what ailed him was mental and moral ennui". In the Countess Althann died, and Metastasio's social contacts were reduced to the gatherings round him in the bourgeois house of his friend Nicolo Martinez, the secretary to the papal Nuncio in Vienna. He sank rapidly into the habits of old age; and, though he lived till the year , he was very inactive.
A Dictionary of Music and Musicians/Metastasio, Pietro
He bequeathed his whole fortune of some , florins to the six children of Nicolo Martinez. He had survived all his Italian relatives. Throughout the forty years of his career in Vienna, in the course of which Metastasio eventually outlived his own originality and creative powers, his fame went on increasing. In his library he counted as many as forty editions of his own works. They had been set to music over and over again by every composer of distinction.
They had been sung by the best virtuosi in every capital, and there was not a literary academy of note which had not conferred on him the honour of membership. Strangers of distinction passing through Vienna made a point of paying their respects to the old poet at his lodgings in the Kohlmarkt Gasse. But his poetry was intended for a certain style of music — for the music of omnipotent vocalists, of exceedingly skilled sopranos and castrati. When the operas of Christoph Willibald Gluck and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart —focusing more on psychology and less on virtuoso singing—came into vogue, a new style of libretto was needed.
Mozart did use an old Metastasio libretto for his renowned opera La clemenza di Tito , but, it was substantially re-written for the purpose.
The demise of castrato singing meant that Metastasio's operas dropped out of the repertory. Metastasio's poetry is emotional, lyrical, and romantic. His chief dramatic situations are expressed by lyrics for two or three voices, embodying the several contending passions of the agents brought into conflict by the circumstances of the plot.
