"A prolific and varied composer, Kalkbrenner concentrated mainly on the piano ... His style, which at first was similar to that of Clementi, Cramer and Dussek, developed rapidly after 1820 along lines that brought him closer to Hummel and Field; but he went further than these two from a technical point of view, especially in the use of the whole range of the keyboard and of octaves, particularly in the left hand."
