Franz Clement: Rondeau Brilliant, for Violin and Piano
In the Allgemeine Musik Zeitung 1805 we read the following about the violin playing of Franz Clement: "...an indescribable daintiness, neatness, and elegance; an utmost tenderness and purity of playing ... he has an entirely personal lightness which merely plays with the most incredible difficulties, and an assurance that does not abandon him for a second even in the boldest and most audacious passages...”
This is undoubtedly the style in which Clement played his Rondeau Brilliant. A piece which blends violinistic skill with the viennese sound.
