Muzio Clementi (1752 – 1832) was a contemporary of both Mozart and Beethoven due to his relatively long life.

Although Clementi outlived Beethoven, his music more closely resembles the earlier Classical Style of Mozart.

Piano Works

Clementi wrote many piano sonatas, with some of his best known piano works being his sonatinas (little sonatas), which are still commonly taught by piano teachers.

Other Enterprises

As well as being a renowned composer and pianist, Clementi was also a pedagogue, piano manufacturer, teacher and publisher.
