Haydn and Clementi Online Festival 2022
New Haven Chapter, CSMTA

In celebration of Haydn’s 290th birthday and Clementi’s 270th birthday in the year 2022 , the New Haven Chapter (National Music Teachers Association) invites our teachers to participate in the online festival in November.
Festival is open to young pianists, ages 6 - 18, who are residents of CT.
Free for New Haven Chapter members, $20 for nonmembers.
Registration postmark deadline: November 19, 2022

Joseph Haydn (1732-1809), Austrian composer
This year’s festival celebrates a composer whose genius, industry, and legacy have changed the course of western Classical music over the past two centuries. The symphony, string quartet, and piano trio were created and perfected by this modest, hardworking servant of the Esterházy family, working largely in isolation in remote northwest Hungary. Somehow chronically overshadowed throughout the annals of chamber music history, Joseph Haydn was the composer of 45 piano trios, 62 piano sonatas, 68 string quartets, in addition to his 107 symphonies. Haydn’s influence was monumental, and most of the music subsequently written by titans such as Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Brahms, and others, is constructed on Haydn’s models. Beyond these gifts to composers though, is a musical legacy of eternally fresh and joyful works. Filled with witty surprises, daring, excitement, and quintessentially Viennese elegance, Haydn’s music is an immortal and uplifting tribute to the best of the human spirit.

Muzio Clementi (1752 – 1832) was an Italian composer, virtuoso pianist, pedagogue, conductor, music publisher, and piano constructor. Clementi composed almost 110 piano sonatas. It is thanks to him that today we appreciate the technical and expressive possibilities of the piano: intended as orchestral transposition; and the sonorous combinations of the musical notes at the extremities of the piano.He also, for first, used the piano pedals in a new and creative way.
