"It is with piano playing that this book is concerned, and the history of piano playing begins with Mozart and Clementi. With Clementi, really, for even Mozart did not begin to concentrate on the piano until the middle 1770s ... From 1800 on, the piano became the most popular of instruments and the pianist the most popular of instrumentalists. -- see preface.
