Example text

Clementi seems to have been somewhat alone in his cautious treatment of the pedals amongst members of the London school. But what about the other 40 Pedalling and the early pianists members of the school? Perhaps most noteworthy of all is the inclusion of Dussek's name in the lists of its leading members. We have already seen how Dussek's use of the pedal was admired when he returned to Paris in 1807 earlier in this section, and there seems little doubt that he was one of the earliest masters of pedalling.

48 Czerny was clearly wrong when he asserted that Clementi could not have used the pedal 'as it was not then invented3; but what would have been the source of this assertion? Did Czerny as a young protege in Vienna hear Clementi play when the latter passed through on his travels in the early years of the nineteenth century, or was he relying on the evidence of dementi's published music? The absence of pedalling in the earlier works could easily have led Czerny to his conclusion. The two pianists met in 1810, but by this time Clementi had been performing in public for forty years.
