Composer Muzio Clementi (1752-1832) is mainly known for didactic works such as the sonatinas or the etudes that today, two hundred years later, are still played in conservatories and music schools. These works, however, are only a small part of his output. Clementi also composed symphonies and more than seventy sonatas for the piano.

Clementi was a multifaceted figure who, besides composing, giving concerts, conducting, teaching, and promoting orchestral music, also was a music publisher and a piano manufacturer in London. Being a great traveller and a multilingual, sociable person, he had many friends, with whom he often performed in the most prestigious London salons. In today’s performance, we will be able to listen to pieces by some of them.

Among the works performed is a sonata by the Viennese pianist and composer Marianna Auenbrugger, to whom Clementi dedicated one of the two sonatas in this recital. We will also listen to a nocturne and themes with variations by Clementi’s pianist and composer friends John Field, Jan Ladislav Dussek, and Johann Baptist Cramer.

Muziek Museum Zutphen

Het Geelvinck Muziek Museum opende op 30 juni 2017 zijn deuren in Huis De Wildeman (voorheen Museum Henriëtte Polak), pal in de historische binnenstad van Zutphen. Dit imposante patriciërshuis met zijn eind 18e eeuwse klassieke gevel, stamt uit de late middeleeuwen. De stijlkamers met historische fortepiano's ademen de sfeer van Beethoven's tijd. Aan deze iconische componist, die volgens sommigen in Zutphen werd geboren, is de tentoonstelling op de 1e verdieping gewijd. Op de 2e verdieping – bij het open depot met restauratieatelier – bevindt zich een schuilkapel uit 1628. Regelmatig vinden er concerten op historische piano's uit de 18e en 19e eeuw plaats.
