The Clementi Piano: Vol. 1

The Clementi Piano: Vol. 1

Clementi pianos were built in London in the early 1800s by Italian-born composer, conductor, and pianist Muzio Clementi. Smaller than modern pianos, Clementi pianos have a six-octave keyboard, instead of the normal seven and one-half octaves. The musical sound of the Clementi piano falls between that of a harpsichord and grand piano. This recording, by Canadian classical pianist John Newmark, features the music of three of Johann Sebastian Bach's sons: Johann Christian, Karl Philipp Emmanuel, and Wilhelm Friedemann Bach. The liner notes include information about the performer, the composers, and a brief description and photo of the Clementi piano.
