He is best known for his piano sonatas, and his collection of piano studies, Gradus ad Parnassum. Nineteenth century enthusiasts lauded Clementi as "the father of the pianoforte", "father of modern piano technique", and "father of Romantic pianistic virtuosity".

This week Donald Macleod celebrates the life and music of Muzio Clementi, popularly known as "the father of the pianoforte". He takes a trip to Finchcocks Musical Museum in Goudhurst, Kent, to look at a unique selection of Clementi pianos and marks the contribution Clementi has made to piano literature, with works ranging from his Opus 40 and 50 piano sonatas, through brilliant virtuoso pieces to graded works written specially for learners, and perhaps more surprisingly for a composer who's so closely.

He is acknowledged as the first to write specifically for the piano. He is best known for his piano sonatas, sonatinas and his collection of piano studies, Gradus ad Parnassum. Muzio Clementi was called "The Father of the Pianoforte", "Father of the Modern Piano Technique" and "Father of Romantic pianistic virtuosity".

Einleitung in die Kunst das Pianoforte. Title-page transcription. Clementi's Introduction to the Art of Playing on the Pianoforte Including the Elements of Music; Preliminary notions on Fingering with examples, and 50 fingered Lessons In the major and minor keys mostly in use by Composers of the first rank, Ancient and Modern. To which are prefixed short Preludes by the Author.

Muzio Clementi was called "The Father of the Pianoforte", "Father of the Modern Piano Technique" and "Father of Romantic pianistic virtuosity". In his day, the European reputation of Muzio Clementi was second only to Joseph Haydn in the area of Symphonies. Unlike his eminent contemporaries, however, the Italian composer wrote primarily for the piano, as reflected in his catalogue of 110-plus sonatas and other piano works. His first maestro was his father and then Sir Peter Beckford, a wealthy English voyager.

Born in Italy, he spent most of his life in England. He is best known for his piano sonatas, and his collection of piano studies, Gradus ad Parnassum. Nineteenth century enthusiasts lauded Clementi as "the father of the pianoforte", "father of modern piano technique", and "father of Romantic pianistic virtuosity"

Known as the father of the pianoforte Muzio Clementi played an incomparable role in the development of the piano and of the repertoire for the nascent instrument both as a virtuoso keyboardist and a composer. This 18-disc collection explores the development of Clementi's distinctive style and spans his entire career from juvenilia to mature works. Maestro Costantino Mastroprimiano is a keen interpreter of the classical/early romantic style playing with wit sensitivity and brilliant historical technique on 18th and 19th century instruments.
