Do you have a Clementi or Collard square piano, grand piano or vertical piano?
Do you know someone who has one?
The Muzio Clementi Association of Barcelona, in collaboration with the Museu de la Música de Barcelona, wants to contribute to musicological research through the study of the pianos of these brands that can be found in Catalonia, but also of contemporary instruments, either in private or public collections. The study is extended to the approximate period between 1780 and 1850.
If you wish to collaborate with us, send us the information on the piano you are referring to and some photography in our email and we will get in touch with you. At the same time, if you want, we can advise you in relation to your instrument.
Needless to say, the search is done with absolute respect for the confidentiality of your data.
Project results, march 2019
To date, we have found and classified four pianos Clementi and three Collard, as well as the three Clementi of the collection of the Museum of Music of Barcelona. We have also found other interesting pianos from other brands that we do not include here. This list is a summary of the work that we are carrying out.
