Muzio Clementi (1/23/1752 - 3/10/1832)

Muzio Clementi was born in Rome in 1752. He studied music from early childhood, and by the age of thirteen, assumed the position of organist at San Lorenzo in Damaso. His precocious talent drew the attention of Peter Beckford, cousin of the English writer and dilettante William Beckford, who, according to his own explanation, “bought Clementi of his father for seven years”. He returned to England with his purchase in late 1766. At Beckford’s house in Dorset, Clementi set himself to study and practise the harpsichord. In 1774, his solitary apprenticeship at an end after the stipulated seven years, he moved to London where he appeared more and more in concerts as harpsichordist, his popularity ever increasing as a result of the publication of his Op 2. in 1779. Thus encouraged, in summer 1780 he set out on his first tour abroad.
