The Muzio Clementi Society was founded by Jeremy Eskenazi in 2006 to promote the works of the Italian composer Muzio Clementi (1752-1832), whose musical legacy is largely overlooked nowadays. It highlights Clementi's significant role as composer, pianist, instrument maker, and music publisher in the late 18th - early 19th centuries.
