The earliest concertos from Clementi and Stamitz contain those initial leanings away from traditional Classicism. On the other end of the spectrum, we have neo-Romantic composers like Samuel Barber, who is a celebrated 20th century composer, but who also uses many Romantic stylistic elements in his compositions. • Of course, the virtuosic well known Romantic composers are included, like Liszt and Thalberg. During the age of Romanticism, the concept of a virtuoso had only been explored by violinists such as Paganini, so these composers were some of the first to bring that passion and skill into the world of piano.
