Sonatinas Op. 36, 37, 38
Clementi was among the first composers to create keyboard works expressly for the capabilities of the piano. In his day his renown was second only to Joseph Haydn was he was a notable influence on many composers including Ludwig van Beethoven. Beethoven considered Clementi's works excellent as studies for practice, for the formation of a pure taste, and as truly beautiful subjects for performance. These Sonatinas are testimony to this praise and are recommended for students of the piano.
