Kuhlau was most famous in his day as a flautist and composer for flute. But, he obviously was a good keyboard player and his Sonatinas are part of the regular student repertoire, like the Sonatinas of Clementi. They are actually a little bit more difficult than Clementi, and so serve as a good bridge to Mozart Sonatas. The most popular of the Sonatinas is Opus 20, No. 1.
