The London Pianoforte School is the name given to a group of composers and pianists working in London during the turn of the 19th century. This designation recognizes their musical accomplishments and influence on the musical world, even today. Composers of the School include Muzio Clementi, Johann Baptist Cramer, John Field, Jan Ladislave Dussek, and Sir William Sterndale Bennett. This group produced some of the most significant piano music ever written. For anyone interested in knowing more about this music, Nicholas Temperley, Professor Emeritus of Musicology at University of Illinois, has provided an invaluable resource in his 20-volume collection of works entitled 'The London Pianoforte School, 1766-1860'.
