Details about Clementi : Introduction to the Art of Playing on the Piano Forte, Op. 42 |  Associated sheet music


Muzio Clementi's Introduction to the Art of Playing on the Piano Forte, Op. 42 was published by his own firm Clementi & Co. in 1801.

A revised edition was later published in November 1826.

It was widely distributed across Europe, reprinted 10 times and translated into several languages.

Whereas previous keyboard treatises such as those of C.P.E. Bach (1753) and D.G. Türk (1789) mainly discussed clavichord or harpsichord technique, Clementi's Introduction was specifically written for the piano.

It also included a collection of short pieces for beginners written by eminent composers such as Mozart, Haydn, J.S. Bach and Beethoven.

This novelty, combined with the conciseness of the tutorial itself, made this book a remarkable teaching tool.

Beethoven himself recommended and endorsed this method, and Chopin used it with his students.

Many later piano pedagogical books aimed at beginners (such as John Baptist Cramer's and Thomas Attwood's) were modelled on Clementi's Introduction to the Art of Playing on the Piano Forte.

Clementi wrote an Appendix to this Introduction to the Art of Playing on the Piano Forte, Op. 42.

This appendix is known as Second Part of Clementi's Introduction to the Art of Playing on the Piano Forte, Op. 43.
