Extractions: "It should come as no surprise to pianists that, although the piano sonatas of Muzio Clementi have been neglected for many years, they are among the most beautiful of the Classic period. Clementi's sonatas employ both virtuosity and an intense quality of expression, elements that distinguish them somewhat from the works of Haydn and Mozart and that are forerunners of Beethoven's style."* The composer of the definitive Classical piano sonata, Clementi was one of the first to create keyboard works expressly for the capabilities of the pianoforte. Acclaimed as the father of modern piano technique and the first virtuoso on the instrument, this complex and influential musician was also a celebrated teacher, an orchestral conductor (having composed several symphonies), a music publisher, and piano manufacturer.

Extractions: The piano music of Muzio Clementi, or at least his pedagogical Gradus ad Parnassum, has in part been well enough known to generations of ambitious keyboard-players. Clementi himself, born in Rome in 1752, was taken as a boy to England by Peter Beckford, cousin of the eccentric William Beckford. There he developed his abilities as a performer. His subsequent career brought success as a composer, teacher and pianist, and later as a manufacturer of pianos. He died at Evesham in 1832. Piano Music Clementi wrote a great deal of music for the piano, including more than a hundred sonatas. He published a number of pedagogical works, of which the Introduction to the Art of Playing the Piano Forte and Gradus ad Parnassum are the best known. Recommended Recording

Extractions: Even today, the piano works of Muzio Clementi are known to every serious student of the piano. For the developing pianist, Clementi's Sonatinas of Opus 36 are essential precursors to the more technically demanding Classical Sonatas of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven, as well as Clementi's own masterfully penned Sonatas . Clementi's influence as a composer is most strongly evident in the keyboard works of Haydn and especially in the early piano Sonatas of Beethoven, who was a fervent admirer of these works. Muzio Clementi is commonly called the father of modern piano playing, but it may be that this accolade should be properly shared between Clementi and C.P.E. Bach, a composer whose works Clementi studied with great care and whose works influenced Clementi's own style greatly. Muzio Clementi was born in Rome, Italy, in 1752 as the eldest of the seven children of Nicolò Clementi, a successful silversmith, and Magdalena Kaiser. Nicolò became aware of his son`s musical talent when the child was very young. When he was seven, Clementi began his formal musical instruction. He was such a good a pupil that by age 13 he gained a position as a church organist. In 1770, Clementi gave his first public performance as a pianist. His audience was greatly taken with his playing, and this was the beginning of a very successful career as a concert pianist. Apparently in 1774, Clementi was freed from his obligations to Peter Beckford, and he moved to London. His first known public appearances were as a solo harpsichordist at benefit concerts for a singer and a harpist in the spring of 1775. During the next four years, his participation in London concert life as a soloist was rare since he served as "conductor" (from the keyboard) at the Kings Theatre, Haymarket for at least part of this period. His name was seen in concert programs with increasing frequency in 1779 and 1780, no doubt owing to the popularity of his Opus 2

Extractions: This disc is a delight. I will not discuss the square piano as the notes with the CD do this admirably. What I want to do is recommend Clementi as a composer and give further indication, although this is unnecessary, of the unequalled stature of Peter Katin both as a pianist and musician. Muzio Clementi was born in Rome in 1752; he moved to London in 1774 and died in Evesham in 1832. He promoted Mozart only to be repaid by Mozart's undeserved dislike of him ... which may put a different light on the Mozart - Salieri story. Clementi was a sensational pianist and a deservedly respected teacher. Among his pupils were Field, Moscheles, Kalkbrenner and Cramer. He composed symphonies, a piano concerto, about a hundred piano sonatas which were greatly admired by Beethoven and that, in itself, is some accolade! He was probably one of the first composers to write what might be described as 'educational' music with his volume of a hundred studies Gradus ad Parnassum The music has charm, elegance and wit ... and, thankfully, they are neither weakly delicate nor affected. They are strong but not demonstrative; they do not dream or linger or become tedious. The thematic material is always purposeful and never banal ... in fact, it is often memorable. The pieces have a wonderful sense of continuity; the music never gets bogged down. And I am convinced that Peter Katin's insight into the sonatas and his understanding of the music realises these qualities. Other pianists might play these works with that thistledown prissiness and baroquish lingering affection. As Claudio Arrau once said, "We observe rests in the music but we do not turn them into cracks."
