Muzio Clementi

Universitat de Barcelona


The birth of the romantic piano and the change of social paradigm of 1800

Through the multifaceted musician Muzio Clementi (1752-1832) we will enter into a Europe full of innovations and transcendental changes. The eighty years of intense life of this composer will lead us from Maria Antonieta to anarchism, from Mozart to Chopin, from Italy to England.

We will reconstruct a portrait of the time from documents, letters, instruments, music, literature and painting of the moment.

Half of the sessions were illustrated with live music.

The coordination was carried out by Marina Rodríguez Brià and Eva M. Álvarez
