La chasse, Op 16
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
In 1786–7 Clementi issued three individual compositions for solo piano: La chasse Op 16, the Op 17 Capriccio, and Musical Characteristics Op 19. La chasse is in effect a three-movement sonata with hints of hunting-horn motifs in the outer Allegros; the writing here, thin-textured and harmonically straightforward, is fairly standard for its time, but the effect can be exhilarating, particularly at a brisk tempo.
