Twelve Monferrinas, Op 49
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The original title page of the Twelve Monferrinas Op 49 explains that ‘a monferrina is a dance peculiar to the state of Monferrato’. These are graceful little pieces, each two pages in length. All are in 6/8 metre, beginning with an upbeat of half a bar; all present contrasting material in a nearby tonality; and nearly all have a transparent two-part texture—the one exception being the fourth, where Clementi indulges in the thicker writing and chromatic ornament more usual in his music of this period.
