By the age of thirteen he had become proficient enough as a musician to be employed as organist at the Church of S. Lorenzo in Damaso and to attract the attention of an English visitor, Peter Beckford, a cousin of William Beckford, author of Vathek and builder of the remarkable Gothic folly of Fonthill. Peter Beckford, as he himself claimed, bought Clementi from his father for a period of seven years, during which the boy lived at Beckford's estate in Darset, perfecting his ability as a keyboard player and, presumably, his general education. In Clernenti moved to London, where he began to take part in professional concert life as a composer and performer, playing his own sonatas, some of which were published at this time, and directing performances at the Italian opera.
