CLEMENTI, Muzio
b Rome, 23 January 1752
d Evesham, Worcestershire, 10 March 1832, aged eighty

His father was a musician who had him trained in music from an early age. From 1766 to 1770 he studied in England, where he created a sensation as pianist and composer. He made London his horn e, touring from there to Paris, Strasbourg, Munich, Vienna and Russia. He has been called the father of the modern style of piano-playing; Beethoven, whom he met in 1807, esteemed him highly. He established the London firm of Clementi and Co, which traded in pianos and other stringed instruments, and published music. He is buried in Westminster Abbey.
