Allegro con spirito; Rondo (Allegro spiritoso)
Note: the LH figure in bar 4 of the first movement ( at about 0:17 ) may have been slightly misread. As a listener you will probably not notice, but if you are studying the piece, don't copy me without checking your score!

The Italian pianist and composer Muzio Clementi (1752-1832) is best known today for his 'Gradus ad Parnassum' collection of piano studies, and for his sonatinas. Of course, most pianists learn them as students and then put them away, as I did myself. But I had a look at them again recently, and realised what wonderful perfect miniatures of classical style they are, and what fun they are to play. This final sonatina in the set is unusual in having no 'slow movement' - the contrast between the two movements is provided by the switch between 4/4 and 6/8 time.
