Classical for Clementi


On this day in the year 1752, the clas­si­cal era com­pos­er Muzio Clemen­ti was born. In hon­or of this, our pro­gram today is all music from the clas­si­cal era of the com­mon prac­tice peri­od, includ­ing work by Clemen­ti him­self.

Clemen­ti was a con­tem­po­rary of Wolf­gang Amadeus Mozart and the two com­posers actu­al­ly com­pet­ed against each oth­er in a com­pe­ti­tion for the Vien­nese court. Clemen­ti spent the major­i­ty of his life in Eng­land and he was one of the first com­posers who wrote pieces specif­i­cal­ly for the piano. In addi­tion to being a per­form­ing musi­cian and com­pos­er, he was also a piano man­u­fac­tur­er.
