Muzio Clementi: Sonatinas And Sonatas

Books | Piano

Publisher: G. Schirmer
Composer: Muzio Clémenti
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
Muzio Clementi is acknowledged as one of the first true celebrated virtuosos of the Piano. A prolific composer and esteemed Piano teacher, Clementi's music and playing would influence Beethoven, Mozart and many other musicians. Composing over 100 Piano Sonatas, his work helped define the Sonata-Allegro form and its internal, three-part structure of exposition, development and recapitulation - a form that remains a vital part of composition and music teaching today. There are echoes of Clementi's melodies in both Beethoven's 3rd Symphony 'Eroica' Mozart's The Magic Flute, and the composer's melodic invention provides a significant bridge between the Classical and Romantic eras.

This authoritative volume, part of Schirmer's Library Of Musical Classics, features 6 Sonatinas and 18 Sonatas by Clementi for the Piano, edited by Giuseppe Buonamici and Louis Kohler.

      Musicroom Reviews

      Clementi had composed some very good music for piano and this is a rite of passage book for anyone who has been learning piano for a few years. It gives a first taste for what Sonatas will be like, challenges a student and builds up stamina for future playing.
