Britannica Concise

British (Italian-born) composer, publisher, and manufacturer. Brought to England at 13 by a wealthy English traveler who had heard his organ playing, he was set to solitary music studies for seven years on a country estate. His keyboard playing and early sonatas thereafter gained him renown in London. In 1781 he and W. A. Mozart competed before the emperor, and he later toured extensively as conductor and pianist. In 1798 he restarted a successful music-publishing and piano-manufacturing firm. His piano pieces were highly influential, and he taught many leading pianists. His works include over 100 piano sonatas and Gradus ad Parnassum (3 vols., 1817-26), a popular pedagogical set of 100 diverse piano pieces.
