This is an attractive piece which has in the recent past been used as the basis for a pop tune. In this arrangement for violin viola & cello of the first section of the piece, the melody is played by the violin while the chords and bass are played by the viola and cello respectively. A tempo of 110 quarter note (crotchet) beats to the minute is suggested. The rondo was composed by Clementi, known in his own time as a teacher, composer, performer and even as a manufacturer of pianos spending most of his adult life living in England. His Opus 36 Sonatinas are a rich source of music for piano players. A rondo is a piece with a recurring theme although only the A or first section is featured in this improver level arrangement intended to introduce players of these instruments to ensemble playing.
