    Default Clementi

    Recently I found Clementi's opus 40 number 2 piano sonata:

    I can hear the influence on Beethoven and Chopin.

    Which other Clementi works do you recommend?

    Howard Shelley (piano) recorded a wonderful disc with Capriccios & Variations on Hyperion.

    Childhood favorite: Sonatina (op. 37, no. 2)
    Adulthood favorite: Sonata in F sharp minor (op. 26, no. 2)

    I have also heard his symphonies but didn't find them quite as attractive as the works for solo piano.

    I viewed this the other day and Robert uses a piece from Clementi (C Major Opus 36, No. 1) which is quite beautiful.

    I just got back to regularly playing the piano after intermittent breaks. I'm really trying to focus on honing a good technique this time. One of the pieces I am working on is Clementi's sonatina 1

    There's another one in C major that's fun . . .
