Muzio Clementi's legacy to pianists lies not only in his teaching studies and in his exploration of new levels of virtuosity, but in compositions that were widely admired by contemporaries such as Beethoven. This album explores a variety of pieces, a number of which focus on variations. 'The Black Joke' was a popular English tune garnished by Clementi with 21 successive variations. Musical Characteristics captures the styles of leading figures of the time, including Mozart, Haydn and Kozeluch, while the Variations on 'Batti, batti' is a virtuoso transcription. Nicholas Rimmer plays on an original fortepiano made in Clementi's own workshop around 1806. A pianist with a keen interest in chamber music, Lied, as well as in historical keyboard instruments, Nicholas Rimmer has appeared in many major concert venues in Germany and the UK, among others. His collaborative partnerships with Gabriel Schwabe and Tianwa Yanghave resulted in acclaimed recordings of Brahms and Wolfgang Rihm; the latter (8.572730) received a Diapason d'Or, a Pizzicato Supersonic Award and an International Record Review 'Outstanding' Award.
