Classical period composer Johann Baptist Cramer (1771-1858) wrote mainly for the piano, including a method book. He also was an accomplished pianist; Beethoven claimed that Cramer was the finest of his day. He wrote nine piano concertos, over two hundred piano sonatas and about fifty accompanied piano sonatas. Cramer was born in Germany but, like Handel and others, settled in England and lived out his days there.
