Muzio Clementi (1752-1832), a renowned piano teacher in his own day, is today best-known for this set of six Sonatinas, Opus 36. It is a tribute to their inherent musical appeal that, after two centuries, almost anyone who has studied piano knows one or more of these small gems. In these short, sparkling works, all attention is directed to the most basic pianistic concepts: precise phrasing, evenness of touch, and dynamic control. This book includes an access code to online audio of demo tracks for each work. Editor & recording artist: Jennifer Linn
